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 opportunities to the left highlight faculty development resources for faculty. Please feel free to contact  Dr. Lázaro Lima, Associate Provost for Faculty, for additional faculty development resources at the University of Richmond.
