Fulton Faculty Colloquia

The Fulton School Brown Bag Series, a lunchtime staple in the Fulton School of Liberal Arts for more than a decade, evolved into the Fulton Faculty Colloquia in 2010-2011. Meeting on designated Tuesdays at 3:30 p.m. and featuring the research and creative work of faculty members from across the School, the Colloquia celebrate both the work of individual faculty and the disciplinary diversity of the Fulton School. Since fall 2011 the Colloquia have focused primarily on the work of faculty returning from a recent sabbatical. The fall 2017 programs appear below, as well as a record of FFC events from 2009-2016. Please plan to come out and join your Fulton colleagues once again next year for what will be a series of thought-provoking and conversation-starting colloquia!

Should you have any questions, or suggestions, regarding the FFC, please do not hesitate to contact Associate Dean Louise Detwiler at ladetwiler@salisbury.edu or 410-677-5384.
