The Office of Faculty and Academic Staff Development is a unit within the Office of the Provost that facilitates cross-institutional connections among individuals and entities in support of the advancement of academic careers.
We serve academics of every rank, appointment type, and career stage.
We support our colleagues as they develop productive careers reflective of their individual aspirations and help them understand how those aspirations contribute to institutional priorities. We create and offer programs and resources, promote relevant resources that others offer in their domains of expertise, and partner with others to provide programs and resources involving groups of stakeholders.
Within the office and across campus, this work requires collaboration, coordination, and commitment to inclusive and diverse working environments. Our work (1) is grounded in research and evidence, (2) privileges innovation as a way to promote growth and development, and (3) is designed to improve our institution’s culture. Across our work, we seek to facilitate connections between career goals of individual faculty and academic staff and institutional priorities.
