Through its offerings in these areas, the FDC strives to: support all faculty in exploring new interests and developing new skills, foster cross-disciplinary collaboration and community amongst faculty, recognize and support faculty in their varied accomplishments, support student learning by enhancing faculty development, and connect faculty growth to the university's mission, goals, and strategies
