Faculty and staff will discuss campus technologies and provide information regarding research, instruction, assessment, advising and student life.

“The Faculty Conference marks the beginning of the academic year. It provides an opportunity for faculty and academic staff to network, engage and learn with and from their colleagues,” said Canan Bilen-Green, vice provost for faculty affairs and equity

Participants attend sessions on such topics as methods for reaching a variety of learners, academic leadership, strategies for navigating conflict and creating work-life balance.
