The University of Pittsburgh will host the fourth annual Diversity Retreat: Instituting a Culture of Inclusion in Alumni Hall on June 25. The event will feature an array of engaging workshops, roundtable discussions, poster presentations, a community panel session, and featured presentations that outline how we can foster an equitable, just, and inclusive campus community. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. The retreat is free to attend, but seating is limited and registration will close when capacity is met.

Our next Teaching Partners meeting is Friday, March 23, from noon - 1:30 p.m., at the University Club (Ballroom A). Lunch will be provided. This community now contains faculty from as many as 40 different schools and disciplines. You can join the conversation and sign up for the March meeting on our Teaching Partners page.
We’d like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the 2019 Pittsburgh Regional Faculty Symposium on March 11. The event attracted over 270 professionals from around the region – and internationally — and gathered together talents and expertise from across the entire spectrum of higher education. Special thanks to Dr. Sarah Rose Cavanagh for offering the keynote address, as well as 13 different Pitt faculty members who where involved in the planning or hosting of a conference session.
