Workshops & Events

Faculty Development Program courses and workshops convene the academic community and build relationships across schools and divisions. Programming falls into six core categories: Scholarship, Promotion, and Tenure; Teaching; Mentoring; Leadership; Academic Leadership Series (primarily for department chairs); and the Academic Communicators Network. Additional featured events include sessions on general University life. The Faculty Development Program also highlights select events offered by the Office of Dual Careers and Faculty Relocation and other campus partners that may be of interest to academics.

Stay informed about events and opportunities to learn and build community. Our Campus Community page, as well as the University’s events calendar, will inform you about other events happening on and near campus.
