I cordially invite colleagues to the following events to kick off a scholarly, refreshing summer:
Workshop on Research and Publication, Pace University Faculty Institute, May 24, 2011, 10:45 – 11:35 AM, One Pace Plaza, Room W511
This workshop aims at supporting faculty to succeed at Pace as a doctoral/research university (DRU) by exploring how to increase scholarly productivity. Dr. Perry Halkitis, Associate Dean for Research & Doctoral Studies and Professor of Applied Psychology & Public Health in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development at New York University, will shed light on promoting a culture of scholarship via faculty development. Ms. Janice Stern, Senior Editor in Health and Behavior at Springer Science & Business Media, will discuss trends and state-of-the-art in publishing, with tips for publisher-author interaction. The guest speakers will be joined by our Chairs of the Committees for Scholarly Research and Kenan Faculty Development as well as Library staff with information on support mechanism at Pace.
Roundtable on Faculty Leadership Development, Pace University Faculty Institute, May 25, 2011, 2:00 – 2:50 PM (with possible extension to 4 pm as needed), One Pace Plaza, Room W511
This Roundtable hopes to attract faculty aspiring to play a greater and more effective leadership role through participation in shared governance via committees, Faculty Councils, academic programs, departmental affairs, and moving into administration. Ideas and approaches to faculty leadership development will be shared and best practice examples examined. Open and unrestricted discussion will be encouraged in order to identify diverse faculty needs, interests, and aspirations to help the University with planning and assessment of its faculty development efforts. Representatives from support offices and programs will join the discussion with information on fellowships, grant programs, affirmative action, etc. Participants with strong interests may be invited to further brainstorming as part of a “critical mass” for planning new initiatives.
