Faculty leadership is important because faculty represent key stakeholders who are committed to the core academic and democratic values that underpin higher education. The CFE encourages effective leadership by:

  • Offering faculty orientation, workshops, and events for new and junior faculty, department chairs and deans
  • Offering Faculty Learning Communities supporting diversity and inclusion
  • Supporting mentorship programs
  • Acknowledging faculty leaders via nominations for U.S Professor of the Year
