Consultants will be available for drop-in or scheduled VIRTUAL consultations with faculty, students, and staff from any school or department at VCU. Come see us by joining a Zoom meeting on Friday, October 8th, any time between 11am and 2pm.

To receive the Zoom link, please complete this REDCap survey to indicate the consultant(s) you would like to meet with, and to select a preferred time or to indicate that you would like to drop-in. Once you have completed the sign-up survey, you will be sent an email or calendar invite with Zoom information.

To enable privacy during consultations, this Zoom meeting will utilize a virtual waiting room. When you first enter the meeting, you will be placed in this waiting room. The Wright Center staff member running the virtual consulting hours will admit you to the Zoom meeting and place you in a breakout room with your requested consultant, when the consultant is available.

Faculty, students, and staff from all VCU schools and departments are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to answer questions and receive guidance on new and/or existing research studies. Faculty, students, and staff are encouraged to meet with as many or as few consultants as desired.
