During this year’s Faculty Appreciation Week, February 22 to 28, we’ll keep Experience Learning in the forefront as we recognize some of the many ways our faculty are “Going the Extra Mile” in their teaching, research, and outreach.
Here’s a look at the activities planned for the week:
- Monday, February 22—Experience Learning lunch and poster session, 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Stokely Hospitality Suite (Room 501), Haslam Business Building. Register for this free event, which will feature presentations by two faculty members actively involved in experiential learning projects.
- Wednesday, February 24—Gallery of Excellence and Reception, 4:30 to 6:00 p.m., Frieson Black Cultural Center. Plan to attend this exposition of diversity-related research, hosted by the Office for Diversity and Inclusion and co-sponsored by the Office of Research and Engagement and the Office of the Provost. Refreshments and door prizes will be provided.
- Thursday, February 25—Faculty Pub, 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., West Club of Neyland Stadium. All faculty (i.e., tenured, tenure-track, non-tenure-track, and retired) are invited to join us for free appetizers, a cash bar, and networking. Enter the stadium at Gate 19 for easiest access. Limited parking will be available for vehicles with a current UT parking permit in Lot 9 on Phillip Fulmer Way beginning at 5:00 p.m. (after regular business hours). RSVP by Monday, February 22.
- Friday, February 26—Experience Learning breakfast, 8:00 a.m., Frieson Black Cultural Center. Register for this free roundtable breakfast where you can hear from colleagues and students already involved in Experience Learning projects.
