(Co-Sponsored by Future Professoriate Program)

“Honesty and openness is always the foundation of insightful dialogue.”

CCR held the first of its monthly colloquia a gathering that brings all parts of our community together to discuss issues important to the field and our department. For our first gathering of the year, the event was modeled after the Research Network Forum, an event where individuals share research that is in process with their colleagues. As evidenced by the topics below, CCR continues to support a diverse and wide range of research and pedagogical interests.
