Representatives from Hancher Auditorum spoke to the University of Iowa Faculty Senate Sept. 25 about incorporating Hancher performances into classroom teaching.

President Linda Snetselaar invited Jacob Yarrow and Erin Donohue to speak at the Faculty Senate meeting, continuing her push for engagement in the university. Snetselaar said the connection to a Hancher performance transformed one of her classes.

Hancher is now providing a document that lists themes in each performance so that faculty can easily see which performance might relate to their classes.

“We continue to try and find new ways to invigorate our program and engage with faculty and students,” Yarrow said during the presentation.

Yarrow said there are performances that connect with classes in unexpected ways and said the performances can lead to insight into other cultures and ideas.
