Lenfest Faculty Research Colloquium

The Lenfest Faculty Research Colloquium (formerly known as the Lenfest University-Wide Colloquium) is a venue for faculty members to share research undertaken with the support of summer and full-year Lenfest Grants. An initiative of the Provost's Office, the colloquium meets monthly when classes are in session.*

The fall sessions are Thursday, November 3, 2022 from 12:00-1:00 pm and Thursday, December 1, 2022 from 12:00-1:00 pm in CGL 123. Lunch will be served.

In each colloquium, participating faculty members share an overview or excerpt of their Lenfest-funded research. In addition to enabling faculty to contextualize their research within larger projects and disciplinary (or interdisciplinary) trends, the colloquia provide opportunities for the wider university community to discuss, collaborate, and inform faculty research.

The format of each colloquium typically accommodates 3 faculty speakers per meeting, with each speaker allotted approximately 10-15 minutes to present. The remaining time is reserved for Q&A and discussion.

The primary audience for the colloquium is the faculty as a whole, but any members of the university community (with a valid @wlu.edu email account) are welcome to attend. Register here: go.wlu.edu/lenfestcolloquium.

Faculty members** who are interested in presenting are invited to contact Caleb Dance or Lynny Chin.

* Scheduling varies with the availability of presenters.

** Faculty members who present at the Lenfest Colloquium can submit a one-paragraph summary of the work accomplished and any relevant budgetary accounting in lieu of the full report.
