NYU Faculty Resource Network

Stetson University is a proud member of the New York University Faculty Resource Network (FRN). The academic network is a consortium of over fifty institutions whose mission is to improve teaching and learning through faculty professional development. With institutional membership, Stetson faculty and staff have access to lectures, symposia, intensive seminars, and scholar-in-residence programs designed to expand faculty engagement in diverse scholarly experiences alongside colleagues from colleges and universities across the nation and world.  Typically, registration fees are waived for institutional members and the cost to participants is limited to travel expenses.

National Symposium

The symposia, held annually in late fall, leverage the power of the network collective to addresses higher education issues. Faculty and administrators come together to examine timely and important broader issues. [read more]

Faculty Enrichment Seminars

The week-long, intensive seminars are convened by distinguished faculty members from colleges and universities throughout the country. Through lectures, field trips, presentations, research, hands-on demonstrations, and interactive discussions, participants are exposed to the most recent scholarship in their fields while being given the opportunity to develop teaching and curriculum strategies for direct classroom application.
