Activities and Applications
Join us for interactive sessions addressing research, teaching, advising, collaboration, and much more!
National Campus Compact is offering a webinar series on a variety of topics related to community engagement in higher education. These webinars are free to UM faculty and staff.
Sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the Yale Center for Teaching and Learning, and the Helmsley Charitable Trust, this Institute will bring national teaching experts to UM to share learning strategies that have been shown to improve student understanding and success in STEM courses. Participants will develop an original course module as part of the workshop and be named Academic Education Fellows.
The Conversation U.S. is a non-profit website that aims to share the work of faculty researchers with the public. A number of UM faculty have published pieces with The Conversation, which has connected them to other major news outlets and new professional contacts.
Participate in an in-depth learning experience with your faculty colleagues. Topics vary by semester. Come explore new subjects with colleagues from across campus!
