Faculty Day is an opportunity for members of all departments to come together to share research, creative work and pedagogical ideas to build interdisciplinary cooperation at BCC.

The event is organized by the Committee on Instruction and Professional Development, with the Office of Academic and Student Success and the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology.

This year’s Faculty Day features a keynote address by Felicia Rose Chavez entitled: “Navigating a New Era at BCC: Challenges and Innovation.”
