Conversations is published twice-yearly to coincide with the start of the fall and spring semesters. First, each issue is written to stimulate the campus dialogue – through departmental discussions or faculty symposiums – on the pursuit of various ideals. Second, through our various departments – feature articles, forums, book reviews, reports, and Talking Back – we want to keep the conversation going to build on the progress we have made. Our members, representing various institutions and disciplines, visit three colleges and universities a year and listen to groups of faculty and students in order to decide the themes for each issue. Articles are solicited from across the country to explore many varied topics, from the core curriculum and hiring for mission to global vision, social media and diversity.
