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.
