Faculty of Arts
Arts with Impact Speaker Series
The Faculty is pleased to offer the Arts with Impact Speaker Series. The intent of the series is to enhance students' awareness of the value of an Arts degree and the career paths open to them, through the stories and experiences of others. The initiative operates at the Department/Program level, whereby units identify appropriate guest speakers who can speak to the significance of the Arts in contemporary society. See the Arts Speakers Series guidelines and application. Submission deadlines are October 15, December 15 and February 15.
Unrelated to the Arts with Impact lectures, the Faculty of Arts also offers honorarium funds for other visiting speakers. Departments and Programs may apply using the Arts Visiting Speaker application and guidelines. Submission deadlines are September 15 and January 15.
The Faculty Handbook (.pdf) has been designed for new colleagues, based on extensive feedback from Saint Mary's community. This Handbook should provide guidance, direction, and support.
