Faculty Development at UNLV promotes the professional development of all UNLV educators, researchers and other academic professionals through a program of research, consultation, events and resources. Many campus units, academic and administrative, are working in collaboration to provide the center’s services, along with an expanded team of Faculty Development Fellows (see Faculty Development: People).
Services in 2018-2019 focus primarily on the following needs defined by faculty survey respondents, as well as faculty representatives who advised the creation of the center:
- Career planning
- Teaching development
- Research support
A Faculty Development Commons space in Beam Hall, opening in the spring of 2019 will be a hub for UNLV's faculty community, providing a welcoming lounge space, a quiet work area, small meeting rooms, practice teaching space, individual and small-group consultation space and other faculty development resources and information.
A calendar of events is below. Request information about specific services and resources here.
