Staff Lecture Series: Faculty in Focus


About the Series

Faculty in Focus is a lecture series co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the President’s Staff Advisory Council. Launched in fall 2017, the series is modeled after the By Faculty for Faculty series and the Staff Summer Reading program, and is designed to cultivate community at Brown and offers an opportunity for staff to gather and hear from a member of the Brown faculty about their scholarship.
