Resources for Faculty

  • Workshops


    The Center for Faculty Excellence sponsors a wide variety of faculty development workshops throughout the year on topics such as supporting first-generation college students, implementing project-based learning, mentoring undergraduate research, and making your classroom more diverse, equitable and inclusive. See the upcoming Schedule of Workshops on Canvas. We also partner with many campus organizations to sponsor workshops for specific disciplines or programs.

  • Teaching Consultations

    Teaching Consultations

    All faculty (full-time and adjunct) may consult with specialists in teaching, learning, and assessment to discuss instructional approaches. Consultations can include non-evaluative teaching observations at faculty request.

    The Center for Faculty Excellence also assists faculty in discovering what is working best for students by providing opportunities to collect feedback from students through focus groups or anonymous surveys.
