CSCU Faculty Research & Creative Activity Conference

The Connecticut State University Faculty Research Conference dates to the 1990s. It began as a faculty-led initiative typically held every other year, under the direction of Harvey Feinberg (now Professor Emeritus of History at Southern Connecticut State University). As of 2005, the CSU System Office officially began co-sponsoring the conference. German Bermudez, Associate Executive Officer, facilitated the planning of the conference as an annual showcase of faculty research in the CSU System and it rotated among the 4 CSUs until 2011.
