Lenfest Faculty Research Colloquium

The Lenfest Faculty Research 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 at least twice per term when classes are in session.*

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.

Faculty who present their research 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.

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 faculty, but all members of the university community are welcome to attend. Register here: go.wlu.edu/lenfestcolloquium.
