Fac Chats

Co-sponsored by the Intercultural Center and the SMC library Fac Chats is designed as a showcase for some of the critical approaches to research that SMC faculty accomplish behind the scenes, and as a forum for faculty, students, and staff from different disciplines to learn together in community and explore ideas that you might not encounter in class. They're sort of like TED Talks, in that they take some pretty complex ideas and present them in an accessible way--but we get the chance to go even deeper, with 30 minutes for the conversation and 15 minutes for Q&A.
Upcoming Spring 2023 Fac Chats:
  • Wednesday, March 8 - 1:00-2:00pm (IC)
    • Dr. Tangela Blakely Reavis - "Pathways to College for Black Scholars: Fostering Community Cultural Wealth in a Post-Pandemic World"
