Faculty and Staff Professional Development Chat Series

In partnership with the Secretary of the Academic Staff Office and the Office of the Secretary of the Faculty, the vice provost for faculty and staff supports a variety of professional development programming for faculty and staff, including specific “chat series” designed for academic staff, assistant professors and mid-career faculty. All series run during the academic year.

Academic Staff Chats

Academic Staff Chats are frank, open discussions among a small group of academic staff members on a particular topic. Some topics may include a speaker or panel prior to ample discussion time. Four to six sessions are typically hosted throughout the academic year. All sessions free and include lunch.
