The Office for Faculty Career Development supports faculty in their development of scholarship, teaching, and colleagueship. We offer professional development training through workshops on publishing, leadership, research technology, grant writing, and professional speaking. We also provide resources to further develop teaching skills through workshops, videotaping, skill-building seminars, student focus groups, and individual consultations and coaching. And we offer consulting in regard to professional relationships and collegiality dynamics. If the office cannot provide the resources you need, we will suggest where you can find them.
