Faculty Corner: December 2018
The semester may be drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean faculty can’t take advantage of a few last minute opportunities!
Apply to the Periclean Faculty Leadership Program™
Project Pericles is pleased to announce the third round of the Periclean Faculty Leadership (PFL) Program™. This faculty leadership and course development program is dedicated to incorporating civil dialogue, civic engagement, and social responsibility across the undergraduate curriculum. The Periclean Faculty Leaders will champion civic engagement in the classroom, on campus, and in the community. The program supports faculty members from a wide variety of disciplines as they create and teach new courses that address issues of social concern, enrich their curriculum, and enhance student social interest and involvement.
Periclean Faculty Leaders will also organize campus-wide activities and/or prepare an academic paper or research project. Due to the interest of Periclean campuses and the generous support of the Eugene M. Lang Foundation, Project Pericles will be offering the PFL Program on an annual basis beginning with this cohort in 2019–2020.
Pace is invited to nominate one or two eligible faculty members from different disciplines to be Periclean Faculty Leaders. Faculty in disciplines in which civic engagement is not traditionally a focus are encouraged to apply. View courses from previous PFLs.
The deadline to apply is Monday, December 17. Award announcements will be made in Tuesday, March 19, for courses to be taught in fall 2019.
