Faculty Development

The purpose of Faculty Development at the University of Richmond is to support the flourishing of our exceptional faculty in their roles as committed and engaged teachers, scholars, researchers, and creative artists across the University's five schools. Faculty development programs, services, and resources enhance instructional innovation and support scholarly and creative activities that further the University's mission to "sustain a collaborative learning and research community that supports the personal development of its members and the creation of new knowledge." The Provost’s office is particularly interested in supporting faculty development opportunities which promote inclusive pedagogy and creative and scholarly work at every level of the career cycle.

The opportunities to the left highlight some of the faculty development resources. Contact Linda Boland, Associate Provost for Faculty for additional faculty resources or questions.

Diversity and Search Advocate Training

On December 8 from 10 am-noon, the Provost’s Office will run a Faculty Hiring Workshop for any continuing faculty anticipating a role in the next 2 years as department chair, search committee chair, or a Diversity and Search Advocate (DASA).  We will discuss the faculty hiring process, faculty ads and recruiting, and the resources available to departments on the Provost’s website.
