Established to provide CHSS faculty with opportunities for continued, convenient,
and compelling professional development, the CHSS Faculty Development Series offers
lectures, workshops, small groups, and other events in support of all areas of faculty
work, including teaching, research and creative activity, and service to the university.
Ideas or suggestions from faculty for future events are welcome. Please send your
comments and suggestions to the Associate Dean for Academic Support.
