RAN Jeopardy

Back by popular demand!

In December 2013, the Research Administration Network held a special event to celebrate the holiday season and the end of the first year of the RAN. Teams played a game of Jeopardy consisting of subject matter covered over the course of the year.

To allow others to consult the presentation and test their knowledge, RAN has developed an interactive game.
