Supporting teachers
Improving learning
By providing professional development that enriches teaching and learning, we help cultivate an institutional climate that values, rewards, and sustains student success.
Advancing scholarship
Enhancing careers
By providing professional development in scholarly writing, diversity, leadership, and mentoring as well as promotion and tenure, we address career needs.
Fostering diversity
Building community
By embracing our differences as an asset, we actively seek to include wide-ranging perspectives.


Service. As service providers, we advance the agenda of the institution’s leaders, including the provost, deans, department heads and faculty.

Leadership. As leaders, we set the tone and pace for faculty development.

Life-long Learning. Great teachers and leaders never stop learning; thus, we have adopted as our motto, “Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.”
