President Hanbury Hosts First Faculty Symposium

The President’s Inaugural Faculty Symposium recently hosted by NSU President George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., was well-attended, informative and fun.  Approximately 80 faculty members and deans were in attendance.  David Thomas, M.D., J.D. and Irv Rosenbaum, D.P.A., Ed.D., M.P.A.  spoke on the topic, “Sex, Lies and Politicians.” Following their insightful, interesting and humorous presentations, faculty meaningfully contributed through their thoughtful remarks and questions.

The goal of the symposia is to promote kinship, intellectual discussion, and camaraderie.  The selection of a symposium topic is rigorous and is predicated upon it having wide appeal and being of current interest.  The Faculty Advisory Council seeks suggestions for future symposium topics.  Comments and suggestions are and should be sent to Morton Diamond at mdiamond@nova.edu.

The President Faculty Symposia will be held on the first Thursday of the month in the Faculty Club, 4:30 – 6 pm.  The schedule for the rest of the calendar year is:

Oct. 6:  Teaching Dick and Jane to Read at University: What Works?

Nov. 3:  Positive Psychology:  Will We Be Happier?

Dec. 1: Where Have You Gone Joe DiMaggio?  Are We Allowed and to Have Heroes Anymore?
