Each year the Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley supports faculty seminars which bring faculty from all four campuses together to exchange ideas, share scholarly interests, discuss curricular issues, promote faculty development, advance individual research interests, read works-in-progress, and on occasion to host a guest speaker. The format of the seminars varies with the needs and interests of each group as does the frequency of meetings. Faculty seminars might include one-day workshops, a series of discussions with common readings, a speaker or facilitator or other groupings of faculty who want to come together to share their research or expertise areas.
Faculty Seminars are funded on an academic year basis. Depending upon the level of activity being proposed, groups may receive funding in amounts up to $1,000. Please review these "Guidelines for initiating Faculty Seminars." Inquiries may be addressed to Ben Dixon, Administrative Coordinator of the Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley, at (315) 267-3330 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for faculty seminars to be held in the 2016-2017 academic year (Fall through Spring semesters) is April 25, 2016.
The Faculty Seminar proposal that is funded for 2015-2016 is as follows:
