  • Actively supporting faculty advancement and diversity

    Supporting faculty with services and workshops that strengthen research, service, and advancement.

    The mission of the Office of Faculty Development (OFD) is to support all faculty at every career stage through workshops and resources for their successful onboarding, research/creative work, scholarly writing, mentoring networks, leadership skills, and career advancement.  

    Support for teaching can be found at the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).

Getting Started

OFD supports faculty in all appointment tracks and career stages, beginning with outreach during recruitment, deepening with a year-long orientation to UMass academic life, guiding faculty and their network of mentors through tenure and promotion processes, and engaging senior faculty in research renewal and leadership development.
