In the spirit of collaboration that enlivens the St. John’s
community, The School of Education invites faculty and students
from all schools and colleges to attend any of this semester’s
Faculty Forum meetings.
Held monthly in Sullivan Hall’s Pacini Room on the Queens
campus, the Faculty Forum serves as a venue for professors,
graduate and undergraduate students in The School of Education to
discuss research projects and other professional matters relevant
to all disciplines at St. John’s.
Established in 1999, the Faculty Forum has flourished with
support from Jerrold Ross, Ph.D., Dean of The School of Education.
“The Faculty Forum offers a valuable service to the St. John’s
community,” said Mary Ann Maslak, Ph.D., Professor of Education and
the Forum’s facilitator. “The monthly meetings provide a friendly,
supportive and professional environment in which participants can
learn from each other.”
Some professors use Faculty Forums to discuss planned writing
projects. Others, presenting pre-circulated drafts of articles or
book chapters, come to both share their manuscripts and seek
constructive criticism of them. Others follow up on published works
and share plans for future research projects, gaining valuable
insights into methodologies that will be used in those projects. In
these ways, the Forum contributes to the publication and
