FacDev-Pathways to Faculty Success


Mission Statement

Faculty Development provides relevant and thought-provoking programming to support all faculty in their teaching, scholarship, service, and leadership journeys. Our programming and partnerships are informed by equity-mindedness, technology-enriched best practices, and data-driven inquiry. We seek a supportive culture of shared power that engages with the well-being and success of both faculty and students.

A note from the Director...

Welcome back! Our FacDev Team had a busy summer as our office has expanded, paving the way for us to provide more dynamic program offerings to meet the needs of all our faculty. Here are a few of the highlights:

  1. The team significantly expanded and over the summer we worked together to develop our new mission statement (see above).
  2. Marcy De Veaux, faculty in Journalism, has assumed the important leadership position as Associate Director of Faculty Development! She will lead a new committee of faculty, New Faculty Foundations, to explore and develop equity-minded programming for newly hired faculty.
  3. Hillary Kaplowitz and Janett Silvers, Instructional Designers, along with the Academic Technology Fellows (ATFs) have moved to Faculty Development allowing us to provide programming for faculty to integrate pedagogy and technology. This means we now offer eLearning programming to help you teach online, hybrid, and technology-enhanced face-to-face courses; this even includes the eLearning Institute!
  4. Coming soon we will invite you to an open house of our newly redesigned Faculty Development space. This will be the home of all our Faculty Learning Communities. It will also be open for faculty lounging/decompressing (with coffee, tea & snacks), an open grading zone, and protected space for a different kind of faculty connection, dialogue, and creativity.

On behalf of the entire FacDev team, we can't wait to engage with you this year!
