Faculty Affairs Update

Office of the ProvostFeb 8, 2016

Greetings Colleagues,

Here are some of the upcoming faculty development events and other opportunities I'd like to share with you:   

Save the Date: Faculty Mentoring Workshop
On Thursday, February 18, Pacific will host a National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) Workshop entitled "Rethinking Mentoring: Building Communities of Inclusion, Support and Accountability," facilitated by Rosemarie Roberts, NCFDD coach. This workshop is designed to start a new type of discussion about mentoring by describing the common problems that pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty members experience and why traditional mentoring programs fail to meet those needs. The three-hour workshop begins at noon and is open to all department chairs, program directors, faculty leaders and senior faculty. It includes a working lunch. Please RSVP to Erika Greet at 209.946.2551 or so that we can plan for lunch accordingly.
