Faculty Resource Network

Faculty Resource Network, New York University

Since 2005 Gustavus has been an associate member of the Faculty Resource Network based at New York University. This membership offers many benefits to the college, including Network Winter, an Annual Symposium, and - most notably - Network Summer programs.

Applications are due February 15th, 2008. Forms will be available online. Each application requires a brief statement of intent, a CV, and a letter of support from Mariangela Maguire, the Academic Dean who is the campus liaison to the Network.

Network Summer 2007 was held in New York City June 11-15, 2007. Fourteen seminars were offered. Successful applicants received a travel subvention to cover airfare to New York, free housing at New York University, breakfast and lunch, and free registration for one of the 14 intensive seminars with a diverse group of faculty. All that Gustavus faculty had to contribute is their time and energy - and the price of a few dinners.
