Office for Faculty Career Development

The Office for Faculty Career Development supports faculty scholarship, teaching, and colleagueship. We aim to cultivate a welcoming and inclusive campus community in which all of our students, faculty, and staff can thrive.

The OFCD offers professional development training throughout the year on a wide range of topics including research, leadership, technology, grant writing, professional speaking, and writing for the public.  We work closely with the Center for Pedagogical Innovation (CPI) to support inclusive, innovative, and dynamic teaching.  Every semester the OFCD helps coordinate the formation of a variety of faculty “communities” focused on teaching, research, and professional development.

In addition to providing institutional support for faculty, we also offer one-on-one consultations about all aspects of faculty life. If we are unable to provide the resources you need, we will suggest where you can find them.
