Even as a northwest native, this winter felt particularly long, cold, and dark yet it flew by in a blink. The longer, lighter, and warmer days bring renewed optimism and cause for celebration - which is exactly what we intend on doing this quarter! First, congratulations to this year's ten Summer Faculty Fellows representing impactful projects across disciplines, addressing important and urgent issues. Second, you are cordially invited to our virtual Celebration of Scholarship in partnership with the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons on May 20th - showcasing six faculty, nominated by their deans, in our final lightning talks of the year, as well as additional highlights of all your outstanding sponsored projects and scholarly successes over this academic year, as submitted by you. And finally, we hope you’ll take advantage of our learning opportunities this quarter, as well as great offerings hosted by our friends in the Center for Faculty Development including a ‘Planning for an Intentional Summer’ workshop where we will offer tips on utilizing our new subscription to GrantForward. We hope to see you soon!
