Faculty Development Committee

The CLAS Faculty Development Committee (FDC) advises the Dean on faculty development in teaching, scholarship, and service. This includes the mentoring of new faculty consistent with the goals of liberal learning. The FDC reviews and recommends to the CLAS Personnel Committee on sabbatical leave requests, and to the Dean on university-wide awards. The committee also advises the Dean on assisting faculty and student research collaboration, and will support faculty in the grant proposal process as a liaison between CLAS and internal and external audiences.

The Faculty Development Committee (TT) meets on Thursdays from 4:00-5:30 pm.
