Faculty Hub Associates

Faculty Hub Associates are full-time faculty who dedicate some of their time (with compensation) to support faculty development at UR. 

Faculty Hub Conversations

Periodically throughout the semester, the Faculty Hub hosts informal, interdisciplinary conversations (50 minutes) around a topic of shared interest. The goal of these conversations is to provide faculty with opportunities to share knowledge and practices with one another, to ask questions and get feedback from other faculty, and to build community and connection with colleagues from across campus.
