    Research support units seek input on communications

    University Research Services (URS) and Industry Partnerships want to hear from the people they support on a daily basis.

    The units are looking to improve their communication with members of the research community at Queen’s. They have kicked off the process by distributing a survey to researchers, research administrators, other service-oriented administrators, as well as graduate students.

    “Effective communication is essential in our efforts to help people achieve excellence in research and scholarship at Queen’s,” says Karina McInnis, Executive Director, URS. “We hope members of the research community take a few moments out of their busy day to tell us what they like and don’t like, and offer suggestions on preferred communication mechanisms.”

    Research Administration Communications Survey
    May 26 is the deadline for completing the survey

    The survey asks members of the research communication to identify:

    • The content they are looking for on the website.
    • The content that is currently missing and should be added to the website.
    • The information that’s hard to find on the current website.
    • The content that should be featured on the home page/quick links of the redesigned website.
    • New tools/sections they would like added to the redesigned website.

    The deadline for completing the online survey is May 26. Contact URS by email if you have any questions or concerns about the survey.

    URS offers advice and administrative support services for Queen’s University research teams. Industry Partnerships provides contract negotiation and research legal services, and is a responsive institutional “front door” for industry partners seeking to collaborate with researchers.
