Faculty Learning Communities

Faculty Learning Communities (FLC) deepen knowledge, enhance teaching, encourage reflection, and build community across the schools.

FLCs encourage cross-program, cross-department, and cross-school interdisciplinary engagement with projects that are germane to the institution’s intellectual vitality and mission. Each FLC will engage in collaborative year-long projects that reflect the breadth and depth of UR faculty commitment to expanding the frontiers of knowledge and/or education. 

The quality of proposals will be assessed based on the strength of the expected goals and outcomes, as well as the extent of cross-disciplinary and cross-school representation (participation of faculty from two or more schools is encouraged). Priority will be given to FLC proposals that emphasize interdisciplinary projects that promise to nurture productive research, successful grants, and/or important contributions to a UR education. Proposals that also contribute to strategic plan priorities are a plus.
