FaCE Conference Agendas

2016 FaCE Conference

Each year, the FaCE Program identifies a theme for special emphasis and organizes a conference to bring together faculty and staff from across the ACM who are interested in engaging in projects related to the year’s theme.

The conferences include guest speakers with expertise in the thematic area, workshop sessions for participants to discuss ideas for potential projects, to make connections for collaborations, and to review the process for preparing FaCE grant submissions. Conference participants are designated by academic deans at ACM colleges.

The FaCE themes are designed to prompt ideas for projects that might fit within the broader parameters of the program’s funding priorities. However, the annual themes are not intended to narrow the vision that faculty might have in proposing projects to address other challenges or opportunities liberal arts colleges face or that are related to the thematic emphasis in prior years.

2019-20 FaCE Conference

The thematic focus for the conference and the 2019-20 FaCE funding cycles is Supporting Teaching and Learning through Experiential Learning. This theme aims to encourage ACM faculty to collaborate around projects and initiatives that demonstrate the ways in which liberal arts colleges can work with civic and community partners to identify, understand, and address the challenges facing the communities in which our colleges reside.
