Spring 2019 Convocation

Follow Faculty Central on WordPress.com

Due to the construction at all Tri-C campuses, we’ve thought out of the box and made a change to the Spring 2019 College-wide Convocation.

In lieu of hosting a full day program on Wednesday, May 15 as is our tradition, the only formally scheduled meetings will be for the College-wide Faculty Counterparts. These meetings will be held from 9 – 11 a.m. at the Western Campus. While there will not be a formal program in the morning, breakfast will be provided in the A Atrium prior to the meetings. As in previous Convocations, each counterpart group will have an assigned meeting room and will soon receive further information on requested counterparts agenda items from the Office of Curriculum & Assessment. College-wide Convocations would resume as normal for AY19-20.

In addition, all full-time tenured/tenure track faculty and academic leadership are invited to attend the Tenure Track Faculty Reception on Friday, May 3, 2019 at the Terrace Club at Progressive Field. The reception will be expanded to celebrate the achievements and efforts of all full-time faculty. Following the reception from 4 – 6 p.m., guests can watch the Indians vs. Mariners game from assigned upper box seats or remain in the Terrace Club. For an additional professional development opportunity, faculty are also invited to attend the Robert L. Lewis Scholars for Social Justice Symposium on Friday, May 3, 2019 at Metro Campus. Please see the agenda below for times and location. If you are attending the Faculty Symposium and/or the Faculty Reception at the Terrace Club, pre-registration is required in the links below. Tickets to the Faculty Reception cannot be issued the day of the event.
