“The Engaged Scholar”: A Series for Faculty

Faculty, Students, and a Passion for Learning

Join your colleagues for our year-long series on the connections between faculty passion for their scholarly and creative work and students’ engagement in the classroom and in the field, addressing questions such as “How do we structure our courses so that faculty passion engenders student passion?” and “How should our campus culture help sustain this passion and engagement?”  At each session, faculty panelists share their experiences and facilitate the afternoon’s conversation.
