This Faculty Life

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.

Beginning in fall 2020, mentoring activities that had been part of the former "Finding the Path to Full"  series will be part of the "This Faculty Life" series.

Open to all faculty unless otherwise noted.

Upcoming Events

November 5

Our External Presence, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. (online)

Most faculty are familiar with conferences, journal articles, and books as a means of making our work known to the professional community outside of Loyola. This session will cover other methods such as social media and news media. The importance and impact of making our presence known outside of Loyola will be presented and discussed. This session is open to all faculty and non-faculty. 


  • Karsonya Wise Whitehead, Associate Professor of Communication and African and African American Studies. She is an award-winning radio host of “Today with Dr. Kaye.” She is a public intellectual and deeply engaged with using social media (across multiple platforms) to connect with others.
