Sheridan Center 25th Anniversary Celebration:
25 years of Building & Bridging Learning Communities at Brown
We invite you to join the Sheridan Center in celebrating its 25th anniversary with two days of events from November 6-7, 2012. Former Dean of the College Harriet W. Sheridan founded the Center in 1987 with the vision of improving undergraduate teaching and learning at Brown and preparing graduate students to become faculty members. Over the past 25 years, the Center has grown to become a place where faculty, graduate students and postdocs from across the disciplines come together to inquire about, explore and reflect upon teaching and learning as ongoing and collaborative processes. Over time, we have fostered and bridged a multitude of learning communities within and beyond Brown, and supported the development of generations of teachers and scholars. We celebrate and honor the students, faculty and colleagues we have worked with over the last twenty-five years. Join us on November 6-7 as we continue to think about the broader ever-changing context of learning in the 21st century.
