The University of Tampa 2011-2012 faculty colloquium series begins the academic year with a presentation by Natasha Veltri, assistant professor of information and technology management, on Friday, Sept. 9, at 3 p.m. in the Sykes College of Business, Room 131. Veltri will speak on “Social Network: Your Friend or Foe?”

A reception in the Sykes lobby will follow the presentation.

The annual series is intended to build UT’s intellectual community and is an opportunity for faculty members to share scholarly work with the UT community.

Three future presentations are also planned as part of the series. All presentations will be held in the Sykes College of Business, Room 131 at 3 p.m.:

  • On Friday, Oct. 14, Chris Gurrie, assistant professor of speech, will speak on “Immediacy Immediately. Understanding Nonverbal Cues to Better Connect with our Students.”

  • On Friday, Feb. 10, Daniel Huber, assistant professor of biology, will speak on “Conservation Biomechanics: Etiology of Spinal Deformities in Captive Sandtiger Sharks.”

  • On Friday, March 30, John Stinespring, assistant professor of economics, will speak on “Tax Evasion and the Decline of the Roman Empire.”

The four presenters applied for and were chosen to present at the series by the provost and the Faculty Development Committee. All tenure and tenure-track faculty members are eligible to propose a colloquium, and an honorarium is awarded.

These presentations are primarily intended for the UT community. Admission is free for faculty, staff and students.
