Submitted on behalf of Provost Benjamin Rifkin:

Last October a pilot Faculty Scholarship, Research and Creative Inquiry Fair was held in conjunction with the Faculty Colloquium series where various faculty members from Research Council presented their research or scholarly work. 

The event was very successful and we would like to repeat it on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, from 4:30 – 6:30 pm, in the Clark and McDonald lounges. 

The fair will consist of five minute “lightning round” talks in Clark Lounge which will start at 4:45 and end at 5:45pm, to be followed by the Colloquium speaker.  Poster presentations and visual pieces such as art, photos or film, will also be displayed from 4:30 – 6:30 pm in McDonald Lounge. 

We strongly encourage faculty to share their recent research/scholarly work or works still in progress.  Wine and cheese and other refreshments will be available.

Last September, the Symposium on Inclusion, Cultural Fluency, Global Citizenship launched a year-long series of conversations about helping the College to better prepare its students, faculty, and staff for an increasingly diverse socio-economic environment. Discussions have focused on how we can become more inclusive in all areas, more supportive of cultural fluency among our students and employees, and more focused on preparing our students for the “responsibilities of citizenship and service in the global community”. Following the September Symposium, several Learning Communities formed around these topics, and have been meeting since.

On Monday, February 8, from 3:00-5:00 p.m., in the Clark Lounge, we will be holding a mid-year gathering of those who participated in the Inclusion, Cultural Fluency & Global Citizenship Learning Communities, as well as those who did not have the opportunity to do so but are interested in becoming a part of these conversations.

All faculty are invited to an informal gathering of folks on campus interested in SoTL. This gathering (and future ones) will be called eponomously—SoTL in a Bottle—as we share ideas and drinks at The Argos Inn during happy hour (4:30PM - 5:30PM). In addition to convivial hilarity, we will share our SotL ideas, projects, woes, stumbling blocks, and successes. The idea is to bring awareness and foster connections in our growing community of scholarly teachers and SoTL researchers. The next SOTL in a Bottle will be Friday, February 12, 4:30-5:30PM at the Argos Inn.

We are asking for your assistance with helping them succeed in imagining themselves as college graduates.
