Michele Jaquis: 2016-17 Faculty Development Grant Report


My Fall 2016 Faculty Development Grant funded my travel to New York City to attend the College Art Association (CAA) Conference, February 15th – 18th, 2017 (with a day on either end for travel), where I chaired the session Pedagogy of Social and Environmental Justice.

The night before our panel I had the pleasure of joining the panelists for a dinner at the home of Deb Johnson’s, Executive Director of the Center for Sustainable Design Strategies at Pratt Institute who founded the Partnership for Academic Leadership on Sustainability (PALS) of which I’ve been a Fellow representing Otis since 2010. It was a great way for those of us who hadn’t met in person to get to know each other and set us up for a comfortable and easy-going discussion at the end of the panel. It was also wonderful because this panel wouldn’t have even been thought of if it weren’t for my involvement in PALS.
