Friday, Oct. 5, is the deadline to submit program proposals for Future of Higher Education Forums.

Coordinated by the Office of the Provost in collaboration with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the University Teaching Center, these new forums seek participation and expertise from UT faculty members.

“We want to talk about a variety of topics — student success, time management, creating an inclusive classroom, crisis management, using technology and innnovation in higher education, tenure and promotion, and more,” said Dr. Amy Thompson, interim associate vice provost of faculty affairs and professor of public health.

“We want to hear from faculty members who are willing to share their knowledge and experience on diverse topics with campus community members.”

Program proposals should plan for one hour of lecture with up to one hour for brainstorming and conversation. The session should identify a clear target audience and method of instruction, providing two learning objectives.

“We encourage an activity to be part of the program,” Thompson added.

Applications will be reviewed by the Office of the Provost; faculty members selected to present a forum will receive a $250 stipend.
