Workshops & Events

We offer several campus-wide Professional Development opportunities throughout the year.

Faculty Development Center Luncheon Series

All Lunch ‘n’ Learns are in the Trustees Dining Room. You just need to sign in and spend an hour with us listening to different speakers and sharing ideas.

Propose a Lunch ‘n’ Learn for Spring 2020.

Faculty Affinity Group

To meet, dialog, and learn with (and from) our colleagues on campus, the Faculty Development Center is launching a monthly Faculty Interest Group program inspired by the study of Roxå and Mårtensson (2009). A faculty interest group (FIG) is an informal faculty-initiated and faculty-led forum that brings together an intentional group of people of mutual interest for one month. Any faculty member can propose and lead a FIG of a particular topic and every faculty member can participate in a FIG. The ideal commitment for leading a FIG is one month and it can certainly continue for more than a month.

Propose a faculty affinity group.
