Navigating the DUA Process - Secure Data Enclave Training

Dear Colleagues,

Next week, the Secure Data Enclave team will be conducting another edition of its regular training sessions for faculty and staff on the subject of sensitive research data. One of these sessions, “Navigating the DUA Process” is hosted by me and is intended for an administrative audience in order to further explain and reinforce the processes and procedures around Data Use Agreements at the University, including routing and approval through AURA Agreements and other necessary parts of the process.

This announcement has gone out to faculty and other academic appointees, and all three sessions are open and available to all, however URA would like to alert this group in particular to the Navigating the DUA Process session, which will occur next Wednesday from 11AM to Noon. If this topic is relevant to you or your faculty member please consider joining us.
