New to Works? Need a refresher? This Welcome to Works video gives a detailed introduction to Works: what it is, how activities are entered, and how faculty run reports.

Welcome to Works

Open training sessions are offered throughout the year. The next virtual training session is on Tuesday, May 31, 2022, at 1:30pm CDT. These group training sessions focus on importing publications, reviewing and managing imported data (grants, teaching, and advising), and manual data entry in Works. Please bring any specific questions and we are happy to answer them. If registering for a virtual event, meeting information will be emailed prior to the session.

We are happy to accommodate everything from one-on-one sessions to trainings for groups or entire departments. Please contact [email protected] to request a training.
