VPAA Faculty Scholarship Series

image divider

The Faculty Scholarship Series seeks to foster interdisciplinary inquiry and faculty community by showcasing the scholarly work of colleagues who are asking big questions, crossing disciplinary lines, and engaging our times. Each session begins with a brief presentation from a colleague to lay out some central questions or key findings of their research, with the majority of the time for informal conversation and shared discovery. The COACHE survey on faculty satisfaction confirmed there is a hunger on campus for interdisciplinary exchange. Let's feed it. Open to all ranks and disciplines. Light lunch provided. Bring your own curiosity. 

Sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs. Register for a session below.

Have a suggestion for a future session? Nominate a colleague by providing their name and the topic of their current work.
