We think of scholarship as the “cornerstone of a vibrant and engaged intellectual community” and so the Serie Center’s support for scholarship distinguishes it from other faculty development centers around the country, which tend to focus solely on teaching and learning. We bring in editors who discuss trends in the publishing industry and meet one on one with faculty members; organize and host faculty groups that read and discuss scholarly work as well as groups that read/comment on one another’s written drafts; we also sponsor a weekly luncheon during which faculty share their research findings and discuss developments in their scholarly lives. We even provide a quiet space for faculty to write when their departmental offices get too noisy!
