It is the purpose of the Faculty Development Program to provide resources, which will help the 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. More information regarding faculty development opportunities can be found under the faculty tab on the college portal.
