Welcome to the USM Faculty Commons
In the Fall of 2012, Provost Michael Stevenson, convened a small group to examine the possibility of establishing a Faculty Commons, an objective identified in many of the planning documents created at USM. Thanks to the efforts of several faculty and staff, we were able to launch a few Faculty Commons events in the Spring and Summer of 2013. The events were well attended--evidence that we are eager to have these opportunities to learn, share and connect.
The Faculty Commons initiative gives us the chance, as a community, to create physical and virtual spaces where faculty can uncover new possibilities and strengthen existing research, teaching, scholarship and creative work. It is a space in which USM faculty across disciplines can share and learn from each other.
During Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semester Faculty Commons offered numerous faculty workshops, scholarly presentations, and community events. Each event has its own event page home to event details, speaker information, and topic resources.
