Symposia and Institutes

The issues and questions that face the higher education community are often confronted most effectively in a collective manner. The Faculty Resource Network’s series of symposia and institutes are designed to bring faculty and administrators together to examine the broader issues that are timely and important in academia. During these weekend-long events, participants listen to keynote speakers and panelists and participate in breakout sessions, all of which invite critical analysis of the selected topic. Based on the Network’s mission to foster connection, collaboration, and collegiality, the institutes and symposia provide rare opportunities for communication across disciplines, professions, and lines of scholarly inquiry.
