ARC Events

Scholarly Mixers

Good news! ARC has brought back our Scholarly Mixers! Casual Zoom get-togethers are held quarterly to help you find other scholars to publish and present with. Scholarly Mixers are open to NU alumni, students, staff, and faculty. 


ARC Scholarly Mixer, August 2024

Faculty, staff, alumni, and students:

Are you interested in collaborating with other scholars on potential academic publications and conference presentations?

Please join us for an ARC Scholarly Mixer at 7:00 pm Eastern time on Wednesday, August 14, 2024. Register with this Zoom link.

At the mixer, you will learn about opportunities and network in small breakout rooms to chat with potential scholarly partners or groups about your research interests.  ARC can then help you to realize these scholarly dreams. Even if you’re just casually browsing, please do attend! It’s a fun and casual scholarly experience.

Please email Dr. Maggie Broderick any time with questions or input:
