Faculty Development

“Universities thrive when faculty thrive.”

Kiernan Mathews, Executive Director and Principal Investigator of
The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education

Faculty development programming should be a part of every faculty member’s professional development plan. Investing in yourself will increase effectiveness in your position responsibilities. Utilize university resources, as well as other opportunities in your department, college, professional associations and beyond, to advance your scholarship and build a stronger portfolio.
