Colloquium for Faculty Research & Creative Activity


The Senate Committee on Intellectual Community calls for nominations for its semi-annual colloquium featuring the research and/or creative activity of TCNJ Faculty.  Two faculty members are chosen through the annual nomination and selection process to present their research and participate in a reception in their honor.  A colloquium is conducted each semester, recognizing one faculty member in the fall and one in the spring.

Any full-time tenured faculty member may be nominated by a dean, chair or colleague through a simple application process.


The intention of this Faculty Senate-sponsored initiative is to provide a means to highlight the accomplishments and scholarship of the TCNJ faculty.  To this purpose, the Intellectual Community Committee requests that nominations for outstanding research or creative work by tenured faculty should come from academic leaders and faculty colleagues.  Nominees should be chosen following these broad guidelines:

  • Nominee’s research or creative activity is recognized as significant in the respective field of study.
  • Nominee can deliver a lecture on his or her research or creative activity that will be of wide interest to the campus community.


Academic leaders and faculty are invited to nominate a colleague for the Colloquium for the Recognition of Faculty Research and Creative Activity.  To nominate a colleague, please send a one-paragraph email to the Senate secretary, Laurie Wanat, at, identifying the nominee and explaining the reason for the nomination.
