The Provost’s Faculty Symposium series began in 2014 to foster faculty research, initially to support the research of junior faculty members. In 2016, the provost added a fall symposium dedicated to research by senior faculty. That same academic year, research by Fant Memorial Library staff began to be included in this series.

The Symposium is organized by a committee comprised of faculty from each university college and an at-large representative. The committee members work with their respective deans, who determine the selection of presenters.

The committee members for this year’s Provost’s Faculty Symposium series are as follows:

  • Ashley Chisolm, Esq. (College of Business and Professional Studies)
  • Dr. Lorraine Gaddis (College of Nursing and Health Sciences)
  • Dr. Beverly Joyce (College of Arts, Sciences, and Education)
  • Dr. Amber Handy (Connie & Tom Kossen Center for Teaching and Learning)
