Based on feedback from several focus groups of faculty, staff and students, the Faculty Exchange Series (FES) has been re-named “Campus Conversations.” We believe this name better reflects the sessions that fall under this programming, and with the emphasis on “Campus,” we can be clear that all in the UD community are welcome to attend.  We will be adding sessions to the Campus Conversations listing. 

To submit suggestions for Campus Conversations sessions, email facdev@udayton.edu


The LTC sponsors semester-long groups of faculty and staff who read current books about teaching and learning. Participants receive free copies of the books in exchange for attending designated sessions in the LTC where they share their insights on the texts with their group.

Writing with Friends is designed to provide large blocks of uninterrupted time for a small group of faculty to conduct research and write toward a wide range of projects, including journal articles, conference papers, book chapters, and grant proposals.  Writing with Friends recognizes that while research and writing are largely solitary, private activities, writers often find comfort and encouragement by working with and around other writers.  Writing with Friends is held in January and May each year.

This year, the LTC will also be offering mid-semester Writing with Friends workshops in response to faculty input that more of these sessions would be helpful to move forward with writing projects.
