Faculty Development Program

About the program

In an effort to support tenure-track faculty through the tenure and promotion process, the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) is offering a new “Faculty Development Program,” which will introduce participants to the resources of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD), as well as other practical tips and information needed to be successful in their research, teaching, and service endeavors.

Through a series of five sessions, participants will cover a range of topics focused on strategic planning, productivity, work-life balance, and building healthy and supportive relationships.

Schedule and Location

All sessions will be held in Gambrell 429 from 9:00-10:30 a.m.
