The Office of Faculty Development (OFD) was established as part of the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost in August 2008. OFD assumed important functions of the former Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning and offers programs addressing teaching and learning and other areas of faculty work, alone or in conjunction with other NC State offices.
The Office aims to connect all faculty members to vital information and resources while providing the knowledge and skills needed to grow, excel, and succeed in all realms of faculty responsibility. We strive to provide resources for all faculty members on campus, regardless of their discipline or tenure status.
OFD offers a wide variety of programming, including workshops on topics pertinent to faculty success. Additionally, OFD offers reading circles, small groups that provide colleagues the opportunity to share ideas about teaching and learning in an informal setting with peers from across the university. For participants looking for a more intensive experience, OFD offers the Certificate of Reflective Teaching Program, the Faculty Communities, and Community Engaged Faculty Fellows. OFD also facilitates several faculty recognition programs, including the Thank a Teacher Program and the University Teaching Awards. Additionally, OFD sponsors the intensive Institutes, New Faculty Orientation, and the Teaching and Learning Symposium annually.
