Faculty Day 2022

25th Annual Faculty Day Conference and Awards Ceremony

Virtual Conference
Wednesday, May 18, 2022

The 25th 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.
