Since 2006, the Micro-Seminars Program has provided a forum to enhance interactions between our faculty and new undergraduates. Occurring over two sessions during Welcome Week, the Micro-Seminars give students an opportunity to become more familiar with college-level discussions before starting their schedule for the regular semester. Faculty also have the opportunity to explore specialized topics, introduce students to college life or the essentials in a given field of study, or canvas recent developments in research or society.
All full-time and part-time faculty are invited to participate, including both those who routinely teach undergraduates and those who teach in graduate and professional programs across all of our schools on the University Park and Health Sciences Campuses. This is a unique opportunity for faculty in our graduate programs to interact with first-year undergraduates.
Please note that each Micro-Seminar takes place in two parts over two days. Part 2 is a continuation of Part 1 with the same students. Before submitting your proposal, be sure that your schedule can accommodate the following dates and times:
- Part 1: Thursday, August 17, 2017 from 4:00-5:30pm
- Part 2: Friday, August 18, 2017 from 10:00-11:30am
