The Brian Gong Colloquium

This annual colloquium is named in honor of Brian Gong, the Center’s Co-Founder and former Executive Director. Our aspiration for this internal event is to foster the intellectual curiosity, innovative thinking, and respectful discourse Brian models. Our staff focuses on a topic that may be outside of their expertise but is likely to have a significant impact in our field of work. We spend one year gathering information on the topic, and we invite experts to join us for the colloquium to share information and engage in discussions.

The Brian Gong Colloquium provides an opportunity for Center staff to expand our knowledge and increase our effectiveness in supporting innovations and improvements in assessment and accountability.
