2022 Faculty Symposium: Finding Joy in the Journey

Joy /joi/:  momentary and small scale; tiny and visceral. 

Designer and author Ingrid Fetell Lee says that joy is the "little moments that make us feel more alive." The theme of this year's faculty symposium asks you to reflect upon the past two years of unimaginable pressures and celebrate those little moments that have given you small comfort, made you laugh, feel more connected, or just plain kept you sane. We invite all faculty to participate in the faculty symposium with your research, creative activities and panel discussions. It's been a difficult two years. We must celebrate the joyful parts of this journey.
