About the NOLS Faculty Summit
The NOLS Faculty Summit will inspire faculty to lead and teach excellent courses. Specifically, the purpose of the Summit is to provide professional development to NOLS faculty by:

1. Enhancing and supporting the delivery of NOLS field curriculum
2. Stimulating the exchange of ideas and communication within NOLS
3. Building community and supporting NOLS’ core values
4. Supporting staff excellence by enhancing faculty teaching, supervisory, and technical skills

Our goal is to engage faculty and staff, exchange ideas, and learn from each other while having fun.

As an educational organization NOLS values the open exchange of ideas and invites speakers with varying points of view to share their knowledge and opinions with our staff. The viewpoints they share are their own and do not necessarily represent NOLS perspectives.
