Inquiry Circles

The Brown Center is opening a second application round of Inquiry Circles for the Spring 2020 semester to support continued conversations about high-impact practices after Teaching & Learning Day. Each Inquiry Circle can receive up to $500 to pay for materials like books or even food for your meetings. Your only commitment is to meet at least 3 times and submit a brief impact report at the end of the term. The online application is active now at the following link:


FAR Circles

Faculty Annual Reviews are coming up, and the Brown Center wants to help you as much as possible. We are hosting a FAR Circle, which provides a comfortable space for faculty to review and gain feedback from peers. The interim director of the Brown Center, Dr. Nathan Wolek, will also be in attendance to provide his experience with the FAR as both a faculty member and a department chair during his time at Stetson University. This event will be taking place Friday, Jan. 31, from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. We will be providing lunch from Subway (6-inch sub and chips of your choice) and, as such, we ask that you RSVP by Wednesday, Jan. 29, by 12 p.m. using this link
