If you're passionate about collaboration, are eager to transcend disciplinary boundaries, and are driven to serve society and the environment, GISER is for you. There are lots of ways to plug in, but we hope that you'll take the time to try them all out & become an active part of the network.
Collaboratories are student-organized meetups around any project or topic. The name (collaborative + laboratories) comes from the environment they foster as a place to learn about the projects of other members, join efforts, and support others with your own feedback and expertise. They're short, intense collaboration opportunities with an agenda.
Socials are more informal opportunities to get to know potential friends and collaborators from across campus. Geek out on a topic of choice at a local watering hole, get to know other GISER members while taking in a view of the Valley of the Sun from one of its scenic peaks, volunteer at community event, chat about the challenges of grad life over a cup of coffee -- it's up to you.
Workshops are where GISER members develop the skills to turn project ideas into reality. They’re initiated either by someone who wants to learn something or someone who has something to teach and bring together other students interested in learning together. The signature GISER workshop is intended to be a short time commitment, but groups interested in longer-term skills-sharing can go on to form reading and working groups.
