Faculty Forums
CHAS facilitates meaningful exchanges on the creation of inclusive learning environments for faculty on an annual basis. Each year a different CHAS Member Institution acts as the host for the Forum. The invited participants vary by year. Some years may be designed with STEM faculty, and some years may be focused on the humanities or social sciences. The discussions will center on the design and implementation of courses based on how students learn. All faculty from CHAS Member Institutions are invited to present their research during this conference.
