Call for 2026 FUN Workshop Host

The Triennial Pedagogical Workshop is a highlight for many FUN members. The
FUN Education Committee solicits non-binding letters of interest to host
the next workshop in the summer of 2026. Selection of the host institution
will occur in late-spring 2024 to allow sufficient planning time.
Minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and institutions with strong MSI
partnerships are particularly encouraged to apply.

The workshop hosts will be expected to participate in regular meetings with
the FUN Education Committee and should plan to dedicate several hours per
week in the months leading up to the workshop. A member of the workshop
host institution planning committee will also be expected to participate in

speakers or direct costs for the workshop but will be expected to provide
resources (space, volunteer hours, etc…) that support the on-ground

o   Proximity to an airport for travel

o   Partnerships with other regional institutions (as appropriate)

o   Partnerships with campus conference staff (where possible)

-          Highlights of the area and/or institution that would be of
particular interest to workshop participants.

-          Any additional information for FUN to consider

Please email the letter of intent to David Donley, Education Committee
co-chair, (ddonley at harding.edu) by April 1st, 2024. Potential hosts are
welcome and encouraged to ask questions during the process of developing
the letter of intent.
