Admissions & Aid
We invite you to participate in the exchange of ideas at this year’s Faculty Day Conference. The day promises to be filled with thought-provoking, absorbing and (perhaps) controversial presentations and discussions.
Throughout the day you will have many opportunities to speak about your latest ideas and creative work with familiar colleagues, while also getting to meet and collaborate with people from across the entire college community.
With lunch provided and refreshments served the entire day, you’ll have a unique opportunity to get to know other members of the college and share your thoughts, your concerns and your ideas. The Faculty Day Conference will renew your enthusiasm for scholarship while reinforcing your sense of connection to the Brooklyn College community.
We hope to see all of our full-time faculty, our adjunct faculty, and our professional staff at the 22nd Annual Faculty Day Conference!
The 22nd Annual Faculty Day Conference and Award Ceremony affords us an opportunity to pause from business as usual in order to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of the Brooklyn College faculty. At this multidisciplinary conference, colleagues participate in an exchange of ideas about a wide variety of scholarly, artistic, and pedagogical interests and concerns. The awards ceremony honors individuals nominated by their fellow faculty members for their accomplishments in teaching, research, and service.
The Faculty Day Conference provides a unique college-wide opportunity to foster connections with our colleagues and improve the quality of intellectual and social life here on campus. Each year this day gives us a chance to engage in dialogue about academic and pedagogical activities with our colleagues from remarkably diverse disciplines.
Thank you for joining us at this year’s Faculty Day Conference and contributing to Brooklyn College’s professional and intellectual vitality.
