We believe that faculty are learners and as such, will continue to strive to improve their work. Faculty members develop over a lifespan of their careers and that each career span requires a different faculty development approach. Improving also means that their classrooms will become more inclusive and learner-centered. We believe that learning happens in community within one’s discipline and with others across the campus.
