Connecting on Campus
The Weber State University Faculty Staff Association was founded as a social organization for faculty and staff at Weber State University. The association provides faculty and staff from departments across campus an opportunity to communicate, build friendships, and share quality time as co-workers outside of the everyday work setting. The Faculty Staff Association sponsors a variety of fun and affordable activities throughout each academic year. Visit their website for more information on how to sign up.
Faculty/Staff Gay/Straight Alliance
The purpose of the WSU Faculty Staff Gay/Straight Alliance:
Develop a strong visible presence through publicity and networks across campus and in the community; promote awareness, education, and respect; coordinate with programs and processes already in place; advocate; support undergraduate student research and/or service; fund grants for students; rejoice in who we are and build a sense of community through social events for individuals and families.
Purchase tickets to sporting events, concerts, and cultural affairs through the online ticket office. Check out the calendar of events for upcoming activities.
The Wildcat Club membership organization is dedicated to providing athletic scholarships to student athletes at WSU. The Wildcat Club sponsors many annual events for its members.
Teaching and Learning Forum
The Teaching and Learning Forum are creating a database to provide a space for faculty to connect with and learn from each other as we navigate virtual and online learning environments. Please contribute information to help us create a robust resource for faculty.
Communities of Practice
Communities of Practice are groups of faculty and staff who commit to regularly scheduled sessions on a focus area in teaching and learning followed by actions such as planning and trying out the techniques discussed in the group. Your community will provide a supportive environment where members can experiment with new approaches to teaching and learning, share successes and challenges, and/or engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) through collaborative research projects and dissemination of instructional practices and tools.
The Teaching and Learning Forum sponsors faculty/contract staff book groups each fall and spring semester. The list of titles is distributed to campus and posted on the website before the semester begins, and you are encouraged to select a first and second choice from the list. The TLF orders and distributes the books to each book group member. The TLF will also pay for a drink and a snack for each group member from Art Elements (up to $10.00/person) once during the semester.
Each month, the Teaching and Learning Forum publishes a newsletter full of helpful links and resources along varying themes each month. This year, we are following the over-arching theme of Take ACTION (adapt, collaborate, teach, innovate, observe, nurture).
