Flash Dialogues are faculty-driven discussions, where faculty members from across our campus community come together to share significant and timely issues. Using an online submission form, one or more faculty members propose a topic related to campus life, the classroom, our community, or contexts beyond the university--and serve as discussion leaders for the 75 minute event. The CFI is especially interested in discussions surrounding equity, access, and inclusion but encourages submissions on all topics relevant to faculty life. In the brave space of the Flash Dialogue, colleagues thoughtfully discuss the most challenging issues we face as University faculty and members of the greater community.

Propose a Flash Dialogue

The CFI provides logistical support and resources (such as room reservations, marketing, and event registration as necessary) for Flash Dialogues. Our goal is to provide a brave space for these important discussions among colleagues to take place.
