Forum overview

The Future of Higher Education Forums is coordinated by the Office of the Provost in collaboration with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the University Teaching Center. This program seeks participation and expertise of UT faculty in providing a platform for conversation on various topics such as student success, time management, becoming student ready, emotional intelligence, demystifying tenure and promotion, creating an inclusive classroom, setting your research agenda and crisis management. While these are just some examples of the Future of Higher Education Forum topics, we encourage submission of proposals in diverse areas and on subjects of interest to a variety of faculty, staff and administrators. It is the intent of the program to have UT faculty from various disciplines who bring substantial knowledge and experience to a topic to present and lead discussions.

Program proposals for the 2018-2019 academic year will be accepted through October 5th, 2018. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the deadline. Program proposals should plan for 1 hour of lecture and up to an additional 1 hour for brainstorming and conversation. The overall session should identify a clear target audience and method of instruction, and provide at least 2 learning objectives. It is encouraged, but not required, to have an activity as part of the program. Each selected applicant will receive a $250 stipend following their presentation to be used for professional development.
