Faculty Work in Focus: Expertise, Innovation, and Impact at Framingham State University
Time: 1:30-2:30 p.m.
Location: McCarthy Center Forum
Framingham State’s faculty are dynamic, engaging instructors, mentors, scholars and artists, and community members. We invite you to learn about the innovative ways in which four of Framingham State’s faculty are transforming the educational and professional experiences of students, their scholarly and creative fields of inquiry, and the MetroWest community. Luce Aubry (World Languages Associate Professor), Matt Moynihan (Mathematics Assistant Professor), Shadé Solomon (Education Associate Professor), and Sandra Rahman (Marketing Professor), have displayed unparalleled creativity, ingenuity, and determination as they have designed and brought to fruition new approaches to learning traditional subjects and new opportunities to explore previously unexplored questions, and as they forged new connections with MetroWest community partners. Please join us in learning about their efforts and how best to support them and those of others who, like them, are working to make our institution a vibrant one.
