Faculty Engagement

Faculty need support to attend the Symposium on International Faculty-Led Programs. Those who have been able to attend in the past have reported that hearing from other faculty leaders was the most valuable aspect of the event & have indicated a desire for increased support and awareness about this opportunity. 

How can you encourage faculty engagement?

Have a conversation with faculty you work about how you can partner together for the Symposium, for example, submit a proposal with a faculty member or sponsor a faculty member to attend. Want more ideas? Talk with us here at PSU! We can connect you with resources and support your efforts to encourage faculty engagement.
