The Serie Center hosts three seminars for faculty who are new to Macalester. 

All first-year tenure-track faculty members receive a course release to participate in the New Faculty Seminar, which meets weekly during lunch on Wednesdays. 

Pre-tenure faculty (not including first year faculty) are invited and encouraged to come to an informal conversation over the lunch hour on the fourth Monday of every month. During the Spring 2020 semester, we will gather on the following Mondays:

  • January 27, 2020
  • February 24, 2020
  • March 23, 2020
  • April 27, 2020

The Serie Center also invites visiting faculty and post-docs who are in their first three years at Macalester to gather on the second Monday of every month. This optional, drop-in group meets over lunch on the following dates during the Spring 2020 semester:

  • February 10, 2020
  • March 9, 2020
  • April 10, 2020
