Description

Jonathan Lee, Manos Apostoldis, Lissa Bollettino and Ellen Zimmerman Framingham State University was recently awarded a formal affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution. FSU is one of few colleges and universities nation-wide to earn this distinction. As affiliated members, the University benefits from access to exhibits, artifacts, and electronic learning tools. The Smithsonian also provides professional development, fellowships, and internships. This affiliation creates opportunities for the faculty to utilize resources of the Smithsonian in their classes and to promote innovative education for our students. The panel participants—three faculty and an administrator at FSU—will discuss how members of the community can access and use these resources. Faculty will discuss possible ways that the Smithsonian Affiliations Program could enhance the curricula at FSU. The University and the Smithsonian are planning a formal recognition ceremony in March 2016.
