Our cluster has quickly expanded. We’re a community of over 200 faculty, students and community partners that span 11 countries around the world. Because of this, we want to give our members a place where they can easily connect with one another to share research, find new collaborators or communicate with quick messages that would otherwise crowd your inbox.

Cluster members will be receiving an email invitation to join our Slack Workspace over the next few weeks. If you’re interested in being added to this Workspace, follow these steps to join:

  1. Open the invite email
  2. Click Join Now
  3. Enter your name
  4. Create your own password

Once you've completed these steps, you can access our Slack Workspace in the following ways:

  • From your browser: Head to www.slack.com and click the "Launch Slack" button in the upper right corner of the screen.
