Faculty Day 2023

26th Annual Faculty Day Conference and Awards Ceremony

Wednesday, May 17, 2023

Student Center

The Faculty Day Conference and Award Ceremony affords us a chance to pause from business as usual to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of the Brooklyn College faculty. Throughout the day, we’ll have the opportunity to engage with our colleagues’ exciting research and scholarship, discuss pedagogical interests and exchange ideas about faculty life on campus. We’ll wrap it all up with an awards ceremony to honor our fellow faculty members for their accomplishments in teaching, research, service, and mentoring.

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.

See you there!

We look forward to you joining us at this year’s conference and contributing to Brooklyn College’s professional and intellectual vitality. E-mail any questions to the Faculty Day Conference Committee.
