A weekly series designed to highlight events, benefits, perks, and items of interest for University of Miami faculty and staff.

Attend the next Faculty Senate meeting hosted by President Frenk.
Wednesday, Oct. 20, at 5 p.m.
All University faculty members are invited to attend the meeting and take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions and voice their concerns directly to the president. It will be held virtually. Unlike other senate meetings, this one will have no set agenda, but it will allow faculty members to meet with the president in a smaller setting. Visit fs.miami.edu to learn more about the senate, its representatives, and to get meeting information.

Submit nominations for the 2021-2022 Faculty Senate Awards.
Deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 20.
It is that time of the year again, when faculty members can acknowledge their colleagues by nominating them for one of the Faculty Senate Awards. There are three categories: teaching, scholarship, and service. Learn more about each award and how to nominate a colleague. For more information or to submit your electronic nomination, email the Faculty Senate office at facsen@miami.edu.
