Teaching First-Year Students Faculty Community
This learning and teaching community will focus on enhancing our teaching practices for first-year students. As a group, we will share and develop strategies and activities to support our students' transition into college during the first-year. The community is open to anyone teaching (or interested in teaching) first-year students, especially those teaching FYS courses.
For additional questions, please contact Elizabeth Rainey.
Science in Progress Faculty Community
This learning and scholar community will provide an opportunity for science faculty to share their work in progress including research plans, results, and potential publications. The intention is to also foster new collaborations and provide mentoring opportunities for tenure track faculty. The group is also open to anyone simply interested in learning more about how science is done at Loyola.

Supporting Individuals Who Are Neurodivergent
We would like to begin a support group for staff and faculty colleagues who are neurodivergent and/or who care for neurodivergent children or loved ones. Our goal is to share support and resources as well foster a sense of community. If you are interested in being a part of this group, we would appreciate your feedback on the interest form found here.
