Faculty Leadership Development Committee

The Faculty Leadership Development Committee creates resources to assist local academic senates in the development and implementation of policies that ensure faculty primacy in faculty leadership and professional development. The committee assesses the Academic Senate’s professional development offerings and makes recommendations to the Executive Committee on policies and practices for faculty professional and leadership development activities at a statewide level. The committee supports local faculty development and provides guidance to enhance faculty participation in the areas of faculty development policies; faculty professionalism and leadership development; innovations in teaching and learning; and other topics related to academic and professional matters. The committee advocates for funding, resource allocation, and a commitment to faculty development activities focused on equity-minded practices and student success.
