JMU view to the west


JMU Research Development (RD) will organize site visits with potential funding agenicies or organizations. Site visits aim to be mutually beneficial for all involved to learn more about each other's vision, values, practices and needs. 


Site visits provide an excellent opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge and insight into the operations, programs, culture of other institutions or organizations. Additionally, site visits enhance the understanding of the broader landscape in which we operate through sharing JMU's culture, relaitonship building, generating new ideas for collaborations, funding sources, and programmatic initiatives.

A scheduled site visitmay occure virtually or in person and may last a few hours to a couple of days. 

Potential activities during the site visit are:

  • Presentation and/or information on the company or organization and its culture
  • Site tour or Campus tour
  • Panel 
  • Q&A session
  • Networking

Opportunities to participate in a JMU RD site visit will be shared through R&S communication channels.
