Faculty Interest GroupsOne of the Faculty Network’s primary focuses is to help organize Faculty Interest Groups, (FIGs) which will enhance a sense of community among faculty, engendering collegial relationships that may not have developed without the Faculty Network.
The topic of each FIG is up to the group to determine. They might focus on pedagogical issues, mutual scholarship or creative interests or a combination of all three. The Network Facilitator’s role is to help bring faculty together, schedule meeting times and places, provide resources, and event planning. Much of the Facilitator’s budget is earmarked for these interest groups.
