Dear Colleagues,

Below is just a list of Crown Faculty Center sponsored events including dates, times and places.  I've described some of the topics we might cover for various kinds of sessions. We will send out reminders before each event with more specific information about topics, etc. At that point we need RSVPS! 

I have NOT planned and programmed everything because I really would like to "crowd source" this a bit. What else should Crown offer as lunch time topics on teaching or for afternoon workshops for scholarship? Who do you think should present material or lead discussions about various topics?  Please send me your thoughts, Thanks for your ideas.

Crown Faculty Programming


The ever-popular SWARMS (Scholarly Writing and Research Mornings) are back to kick off the beginning of the academic year. Join us on the first Monday and Tuesday of each (non-teaching) block from 8:30-11:30; come and go as you please, and no RSVP required! The Crown Faculty Center will staff and provide coffee, light breakfast, and quiet for two mornings at the beginning of the block. Breakfast, coffee, chatting, and goal-setting from 8:30 to 9:00, then heads down and quiet work on scholarly projects in our own cafe-like setting from 9-11:30. Bring whatever you need to get some work done: a laptop, a book, articles you're reading, or a pile of data to crunch. ​
