17th Annual Faculty Colloquium
Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2021
Cuyahoga Community College’s annual Faculty Colloquium provides an opportunity for faculty to engage in a day of professional development through dialogue and sharing of research, scholarly pursuits and effective teaching strategies. Due to the remote work environment this year we are pleased to announce the event and open to faculty from local two and four year institutions to attend!
This year’s theme is Tri-C, the Classroom and the Cleveland Community: Bridging the Educational Gap Across Social Inequities. Faculty play an active role in bridging the educational gap that exists due to various social and demographic inequities. To address these inequities — and to fulfill the Tri-C mission — the 2021 Faculty Colloquium will be dedicated to exploring social inequities that exist here in Northeast Ohio and how to directly engage with our students and the Greater Cleveland community by:
- Creating awareness in the classroom about social issues in Cleveland’s communities.
- Engaging with students and community partners on issues relating to race, gender, socioeconomic status, ethnic origin, literacy, education, religion, age, access, immigration, and environment.
- Using technology to connect with others and build a sense of community.
Cleveland Today sessions will present ways in which Tri-C faculty currently engage students and the community to bridge the educational gap across social inequities, including service learning, classroom activities and community engagement initiatives.
Cleveland Tomorrow sessions are facilitated, open-ended discussions that will introduce social inequity topics and provide opportunities to define how we envision our community a decade from now: as a role model of equality and justice.
Through the sharing and examination of collective experiences, we hope to educate ourselves and our neighbors, ultimately building a stronger community and a stronger tomorrow.
