The Faculty Development Office encourages and supports the continuous acquisition of knowledge and skills by coordinating and providing the highest quality professional development opportunities for faculty. Adjunct Faculty are required to have 4 hours of professional development each year and Full-time Faculty are required to have 12 hours each year. Hours can be accrued in various ways but ultimately, the employee and his or her supervisor determine appropriate professional development activities, with the supervisor having final approval authority.

Faculty Development Opportunities

Professional development activities may include, but are not limited to, credit and non-credit courses, workshops, seminars, teleconferences, audio-visual materials, grant writing projects, and reading or publishing in journals, as long as the activity is approved by the individual’s supervisor.
