Fall 2016 Mentoring Coffee / Lunch Program

Pre-tenure faculty are welcome to invite a tenured faculty member to coffee or lunch on campus to discuss teaching and/or scholarship.  The two faculty members may be from different departments / programs.  Please contact rchapin@colgate.edu *before* meeting to let us know of your plans and to obtain a budget code.

Faculty Reading Groups

Almost a tenth of our faculty participated in a Faculty Reading Group in 2015-2016.  CLTR will again support Faculty Reading Groups in 2016-2017, with more information to come early in the Fall of 2016.

Course Redesign Workshop?

If you may be interested in a course redesign workshop after White Eagle, please contact me (djohnson@colgate.edu).  If there is sufficient demand I will organize a mini-retreat on campus for those of us who are interested.
