Welcome to the first-ever Virtual Faculty Showcase at Columbia College Chicago!


For the past three years, we have invited faculty to participate in our Faculty Showcases, live events hosted by the Office of the Provost in order to recognize, feature, and share faculty members’ scholarly and creative endeavor that has resulted from Sabbatical Leave Awards and Faculty Development Grants.


As we are all aware, this is not possible this year. Even so, we wanted to have a way to allow faculty to present work that has come to fruition this past year. This show includes images, clips, and descriptions across a range of forms and genres including visual art, documentary filmmaking, design, and public scholarship.


The projects are all engaging, innovative, and aesthetic; they represent leading-edge work in the faculty members’ respective fields.  I invite you to take a moment for yourself and check out each and every one. In the spirit of relationship and connection, I also encourage you to reach out and email anyone whose work you particularly enjoyed. We all know how important public response is to our work and art!
