Announcing the CFD Fall 2018 Schedule

The Center for Faculty Development will again be sponsoring a wide array of programs to support faculty teaching, scholarship, and work life, starting with the Fall 2018 semester. For the current listing, please see the attached document. It includes dates for the Fall Faculty Lunches, as well as dates for the Winter and Summer Writing retreats.
This year, we will be recognizing those who attend any three CFD workshops during the year (8/15/18 – 6/30/19) with a certificate and a letter to the faculty member’s dean and department chair attesting to their involvement. Those who receive a certificate will also be entered into a lottery for a prize. To be eligible, be sure to sign in at each CFD-sponsored event you attend.
All workshops are free of charge, although registration is recommended.
