Faculty Research Forum

As part of Research Month activities, the Office of the Provost and the Center for Teaching and Learning are sponsoring the annual Faculty Research Forum.  In furthering the University’s goal of fostering a culture of academic excellence, we hope that you will consider participating by presenting your research.  If you have visual materials you want to share, there will be poster boards available (36x48 white tri-fold boards), or you can use your laptop to show slides, run a video, make a web presentation or use software you’ve developed.

Maybe your research is text-based and you feel leery about standing in front of a poster board with a 20-page paper set out page by page.  You can take a different approach. Bring a few copies of your articles and share them with colleagues ordisplay work on your laptop.  We will have tables devoted to a variety of areas from the social sciences to theology.  Still another alternative is for a group of colleagues to make a poster presentation together.  No matter how you decide to participate, the important thing is to share your work because you will be contributing to the vitality of the intellectual life at the University.
