In this workshop, we explore a powerful model (Symposium) for engaging faculty in campus initiatives and supporting them in taking a more active role during times of change. We have used symposia successfully to broaden faculty participation in change initiatives, subsequently connecting this work to what matters most for faculty and providing avenues for more inclusive collaboration across disciplines and divisions. Much of the workshop will be devoted to helping participants (1) identify areas where they can lead change on their campuses and (2) develop a draft plan for using symposium to increase faculty engagement in these efforts.
