Faculty development has as its goal continued renewal and growth of the faculty in all facets of their professional lives.
Faculty fulfill a variety of roles: as teachers whose commitment is to provide their students with expert instruction and guidance; as participants in the collegial community of a Catholic liberal arts college; and as members of the community of scholars within their disciplines.
It is the purpose of the Faculty Development Program to provide resources, which will help faculty to develop as scholars, to publish, to share insights both within the community and at professional conferences, and to improve their work in the classroom.
Faculty Development Program Objectives
- maintain and enhance faculty effectiveness
- help faculty fulfill academic responsibilities
- ensure satisfactory adjustments to changing environments in instruction and within disciplines
The effects of the program will be seen, ultimately, in the quality of the instruction students receive and in the quality of scholarly activity and collegial involvement on campus.
