Other Programs

Book Clubs - Book clubs are unstructured groups that meet throughout the semester to interpret and process reactions from chosen book(s) and relate the ideas to academic and professional pursuits.

Adjunct Faculty Development Cohorts - These meetings for adjunct faculty members are informal discussions about teaching and learning issues, and participants will have the chance to meet part-time faculty from other disciplines.

Teaching Circles - Join your colleagues from around the campus as we explore topics of common interest in informal “brown bag” roundtable sessions. Previous topics have included a book club on Daniel Pink’s A Whole New Mind, Teaching Circles for honors instructors, and open-topic Teaching Circles.

International Culture Nights - Past events have featured international teachers presenting about their school, hometown, or region, in addition to the preparation of traditional food and music by international students for their American pen pals.

Common Reading Program - The Common Reading Program is intended to engage FTIC students in a dialogue around a relevant topic while creating a sense of community amongst incoming students.
