Faculty and Staff Development

Faculty and staff development is an important part of a career at Life University that includes a wide variety of opportunities and resources.

Faculty Development
The Faculty Development Committee (FDC) works to plan activities for professional development and maintains a course on Blackboard (FD101). The Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning (CETL) provides consulting into best practices in higher education, a computer lab for training and group activities, and insight into the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).

Staff Development
The Staff Council provides an informational newsletter each quarter, and plans activities to enhance professional growth.  Such activities include “Lunch ‘n Learn” and interactive workshops on leadership development, technology, personal finance and diversity education.

Faculty and Staff Development Program (FSDP)
The Faculty and Staff Development Program is a quarterly event which occurs during the academic quarterly breaks, and allows everyone in the LIFE Community to gather with their colleagues, hear updates and important announcements from the Executive Office, and offers a series of workshops to enhance professional and personal development.  Various awards and recognition of faculty and staff accomplishments are given during FSDP.

The program is administered by the Faculty and Staff Development Program Committee, consisting of subcommittees of the Faculty Senate and Staff Council. Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact this committee to suggest ideas and give feedback on programs. Any campus department may contact the FSDP Committee chairperson to request time on the quarterly FSDP schedule for announcements.
