Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan has been selected to participate in one of the premier faculty development programs in the country, the 2014 Wye Faculty Seminar on Citizenship in the American and Global Polity. As a 2014 Wye Faculty Fellow, Dr. Sheehan will participate in a week-long seminar hosted by The Aspen Institute and the American Association of Universities and Colleges (AAC&U) between July 19-25, 2014. #SheehanWyeFellowBio

The mission of the Wye Faculty Seminar is to assist professors from colleges and universities in relating their teaching to broad issues of citizenship in the American polity and beyond. The Seminar seeks to address a central need of faculty in liberal arts institutions—to exchange ideas with colleagues from other colleges and other disciplines while probing ideas and values that underlie their teaching and the lives they lead as liberally educated persons. Modeled in the tradition of The Aspen Institute Executive Seminars, each Wye Faculty Seminar strives:

  • first, to gather a diverse group of thoughtful men and women in intellectually rigorous roundtable discussions – truly around the table to converse with rather than confront one another;
  • second, to explore great literature stretching from ancient to contemporary times, not merely for artistry of language but for the power of ideas on fundamental issues in our society, and
  • third, to translate ideas into action suitable to the challenges of our age.
