Faculty Development Committee
The Faculty Development Committee is comprised of one member of the Executive Committee, appointed by the Dean, who serves as an Ex Officio member without vote and functions as a liaison to the Executive Committee; and one member of the faculty from each academic department and three faculty selected at large from the entire faculty. Committee members are appointed by the Dean, and the committee Chair is appointed from the members representing the academic departments.
This committee develops policy and makes recommendations to the faculty as required in all matters relating to faculty development.
Such activities include:
- Planning workshops, speakers, retreats or other structured activities designed to enhance the teaching skills of the faculty. At a minimum, two half-day faculty development workshops should be conducted each academic year.
- Fostering activities or identifying individuals that will increase the School's endowment, particularly in support of teaching enhancement and recognition.
Standing committees shall keep and approve all minutes of meetings. The Dean's office representative shall be responsible for the timely preparation of the minutes. The committee shall submit minutes to be posted on the committee webpage within 48 hours of approval. When accepted and approved by committee membership, minutes shall be distributed to the Executive Committee through the designated liaison.
When such minutes include a specific recommendation or policy for faculty consideration, the Executive Committee shall communicate recommendations to the standing committee within 30 working days after receipt. This paragraph is not intended to preclude the Chair of a standing committee to make recommendations on policy changes to the faculty that may not conform to the recommendations of the Executive Committee.
