COVID-19 Resources


AACE Engagement Lounges are Zoom meetings focusing on topics relevant to the work of our members, especially how our work is being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

11 November 2020 - 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
NCI-funded Summer Programs: Developing Tools and Sharing Best Practice for Virtual Programming

The meeting will be of particular interest to all of those seeking to adapt 2021 summer programs to a virtual format. We anticipate R25 coordinators as well as NCI program directors will be taking part. The meeting will be open to all who might have an interest, not simply AACE members (though the event is limited to 100 participants).

During this Engagement Lounge, discussion is likely to include, but is not limited to:

  • Developing legitimate and viable virtual projects
  • Expected level of contact between mentors and students
  • Changes to program recruitment
  • Exploring the student perspective, including individual needs of different student groups
  • Developing wellness and support resources
  • Securing Institutional buy-in
  • Viability of differing types of research experience within a virtual setting
  • Opportunities for resource sharing between programs

Please let us know what is on your mind and what you would like to discuss.

 All attendees will be involved in asking or responding to questions, but we will set a few basic rules such as enforcing mute for the majority of participants until they raise their hand and using the chat function. 

We look forward to meeting with you all next month. Please send your topics for discussion and any questions you have about the event to
