Welcome to the Faculty Commons
This is the second full year of operation of the USM Faculty Commons. Established by former Provost Stevenson in the Spring of the 2012-2013 academic year, last year the Faculty Commons sponsored or co-sponsored 60 events. We are sad to say that Amertah Perman left to pursue another job that uses her great talents.
However, we continue to partner with the Office of Professional and Continuing Education, the USM Libraries, Provost McDonnell and faculty and staff in other academic and administrative departments to offer programs and events.Read more about the upcoming year in my Coordinator Notes for September/October 2014.
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 semesters 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.
