Conversations about Life in the Profession

Join us for conversations about faculty life to build community and collective mentoring as colleagues adjust to life at Loyola, in the profession, and around the Baltimore region. For first-year faculty, these conversations also serve as a yearlong orientation and complement the individual pairing in the campus mentoring program.

Open to all faculty unless otherwise noted.
