Perspectives from the Field: An Exclusive Virtual Roundtable

Wednesday, May 26, 2021 | 11 AM–1 PM PT | Noon–2 PM MDT

Join us for thoughtful conversation and networking with peers who face similar challenges as you. How has faculty affairs, and specifically faculty reviews and activity reporting, had to adapt in this past year? How are colleagues looking to evolve in 2021? What can we learn from each other?

In this virtual roundtable, fellow higher education leaders from your region discuss best practices and case studies. Then, in small breakout groups, we invite you to connect, ask questions, and share your expertise.
