  • Qualitative Research Work group: Since 2006, the SON Qualitative Research Work group meets to support and advise each other in the process of doing qualitative research. For each meeting, one or two participants agree in advance to present part of their work and seek input. For those other than presenters, attendance is on a drop-in basis and no RSVP is needed. This is not a course or workshop, and is not for beginners seeking to learn about qualitative research. Rather, it is for those actively doing qualitative research already. If you would like to be added to the mailing list or ask questions about this group, please contact Maggie Kearney.


  • Grant Writing Workshops
