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.
