Meetings: The Faculty Development Committee meets weekly or bi-weekly as needed (September - May).

Faculty Development Coordinator: The Faculty Development Coordinator is a full-time faculty member who works half time to organize faculty development programs and to assist faculty members with their professional opportunities. There is an institutional commitment to separate faculty development from evaluation. Therefore, the Coordinator's activities are separate from faculty personnel decisions and the Coordinator does not vote on proposals before the Faculty Development Committee. In short, there is a significant institutional commitment to assist faculty members in their professional growth and development activities through a structure that assures trust in that process.

The Faculty Development Coordinator can assist faculty members in preparing applications for faculty development support, in planning their careers, and improving their teaching (for instance, by visiting classrooms, commenting on course design, and suggesting helpful resource and activities). In addition, the Coordinator organizes events such as the New Faculty Orientation, Teaching Roundtables and Faculty Forums, and provides information on development opportunities.

The Academic Affairs Office: Applications are to be submitted to Becky Wallace, Faculty Development Assistant, who handles the paperwork for the Committee and for the Vice President for Academic Affairs. If you have questions regarding reimbursement or funding, you may contact Becky Wallace, (x6555, e-mail (bwallace). Tamara Beauboeuf (Dean of Faculty) represents the Administration on Faculty Development.

Stewardship: The Development Office coordinates reporting to donors about faculty activities supported by their gifts. The Development Office may contact faculty members for assistance in communication with donors.
