Faculty Development

The College is committed to the continuous improvement of its primary resource, the faculty. Through a variety of activities, supported in whole or in part by the College, faculty are able to strengthen educational, scholarly and professional abilities. Generally, individual faculty will initiate requests for funding to their Chair, or a member of the Provost’s Office may recommend professional development opportunities to specific faculty.

The College has a strong commitment to faculty development and believes that it is through faculty development that the curriculum progresses and the instructional program is strengthened.

Examples of faculty development activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Attending conferences, seminars, or workshops
  • Speaking, presenting, or participating in panel discussions at conferences and other events
  • Participating in discipline-related professional communities
