Thanks Kimberly. I already registered !

Hi Janvier,
Yes, it is designed for students and faculty. When you register, there is a required field where you type in your university. Regardless, session content could be informative for anyone based on the topic descriptions. I'm going even though I already have a degree ;)

Thanks for sharing! Definitely this event will help future project managers!
