    OFD supports all faculty with services and programs that strengthen research, service, and professional growth.


Starting June 5 and with sessions available throughout the summer, we invite you to join an OFD Summer Writing Accountability Circle (WAC). A WAC is a small group of colleagues who meet weekly to write and share progress on individual projects. WACs offer dedicated writing time and support from facilitators and colleagues. Registration required.

The Office of Faculty Development (OFD) has awarded nine grants to faculty leading mutual mentoring projects in 2023-24. The projects will support faculty teaching, expand networks, further research excellence, and build community.
