Faculty Development


Welcome to our new and improved web page, with resources for both full and part time faculty.  You’ll notice that a few sections are still under construction; hang tight as we finalize details and in the meantime feel free to contact us if you have ideas for additional resources to share or requests for specific support.

  • Faculty Retreat:  August 23, 9-2, Twin Pines Park.  Please rsvp to Kim Tolley 
  • New Faculty Orientation (both FT and PT faculty):  August 24, 12-6.  Please rsvp to Therese Madden 
  • ALL FACULTY are invited to a reception for new faculty from 4-5PM on Thursday, August 24.  Please rsvp if possible (see above).

The Faculty Development Committee focuses on multiple categories of faculty support:  teaching and learning; scholarship; professional development; and sharing faculty accomplishments while providing general support and information for our growing and dynamic programs.   We are committed to  support existing programs and initiating new ones, especially in the area of pedagogy, to our expanded Mentoring Program for new full- and part-time faculty, and to faculty success in each area of development.  Our events, grants, and programs are open to both full and part-time faculty and we support ongoing learning and development at any stage of a faculty member’s career.

The committee organizes a number of faculty colloquia during the year so look for details on those in your NDNU email. Announcements of competitions for awards and deadlines are sent to faculty via email too. If you do not regularly check your NDNU account, set it to forward email to the address you use.

Check your email for news of upcoming faculty research seminars, workshops and faculty mentoring.
