Salons & Events


Each year, Mellon Faculty Fellows are anxious to continue the discussions begun during the annual Institute with peers and partners from across the campus. During 2003-2004, a series of monthly Friday lunches was hosted at The Faculty Club for the initial cohort of Faculty Fellows. Beginning in Fall 2004, a new model was introduced, one of hosting a late afternoon Salon for Faculty and Librarian Fellows and Campus Academic Partners. The Salons are facilitated or co-facilitated by different Faculty Fellows each semester. Facilitators are responsible for framing a series of questions for discussion around a topic of interest to the group.
