VISA Reception and Research Forum

The Faculty Research Consortium is proud to host a Vincentian Institute for Social Action (VISA) Faculty Reception and Research Forum every fall and spring semester.

This event provides a platform to promote faculty dialogue across disciplines that have participated in, or are interested in, VISA programs. St. John’s faculty members have participated in VISA programs which include Academic Service-Learning, the Ozanam Scholars Program, faculty research/service at community partner sites, and VISA-funded research projects.  These meetings provide an opportunity to showcase faculty research and scholarly accomplishments.
