Faculty Open Doors

Beginning in spring 2020, the Office of Research is starting a new initiative, Faculty Open Doors, to strengthen the network of researchers at our institution.

Three faculty members will open their office or lab for fellow faculty visitors from 1:00-3:00PM each Friday during the academic semester. Each week, we will feature faculty from a different department. Faculty can drop by during these hours to meet their colleagues and learn more about each other’s work. These peer-to-peer conversations can lead to new research directions and collaborations, and a stronger professorial community. We are starting this initiative on the Homewood Campus and hope to expand to our other campuses in the near future.
