Faculty Colloquia

Our faculty are active scholars, performers, and artists who present their work locally, nationally, and internationally. Each academic term,the College hosts a faculty colloquium or roundtable for faculty to share their research interests and creative activities.

Dr. Bibiana Díaz observes that: "As a junior faculty member, the roundtable gave me a broad perspective on collaborative research and teaching. Just listening to what other colleagues are working on enhances our scholarly perspective and motivates us."
