Office of Faculty Development

Mission Statement and Goals

The Office of Faculty Development supports full and part time faculty in their roles as teachers and members of the bilingual, diverse, and multicultural Gallaudet University community. Our goals are to:

  • Promote evidence-based instructional innovation and effectiveness through workshops, faculty learning communities, and other events.
  • Support the development of new faculty as teachers and their integration into the campus community.
  • Foster cross-disciplinary collaboration; facilitate the sharing of resources, skills, and knowledge across programs; and partner with other professional development units.
  • Strengthen the academic culture at Gallaudet by raising awareness of current developments in the field of teaching and learning, especially related to bilingualism, visual language and learning, and diversity.
  • Advocate for and participate in teaching and learning initiatives at the institutional level.

The Faculty Development Committee has primary responsibility for supporting faculty in their roles as researchers, scholars, and creative artists. The committee has separate leadership and funding from the Office of Faculty Development.
