Thank you for supporting REDtalks!

Your support for REDtalks has been amazing this year! Thank you for submitting proposals, promoting our events, and attending REDtalks. Due to your increased support, we were able to plan the REDtalks schedule for the entire academic year, so we will not seek new proposals for the upcoming Spring 2019 REDtalks schedule. The proposal submission form will be open after Spring Break, so please start developing your topic ideas for the 2019-2020 academic year.
