What We Do
The Center for Faculty and Curricular Development (CFCD) offers programs and support for faculty at all stages in their teaching and professional development. Regular programming includes Lightning Lunches (noon discussions in the faculty dining room), a series of events designed specifically for new and junior faculty, publishing panels, open classrooms, teaching roundtables, and summer workshops. Ongoing projects include peer observation of teaching, one-on-one consultations on syllabus and assignment design, and mentoring. Visit our newsroom for upcoming programs and more.
What are your development goals?
We have the resources to help you meet them.
Have an idea for a new initiative? Questions about syllabus design? Reach out to our faculty fellows for conversation or consultation.
