Faculty are asked to register for meetings via the OFE Registration site:
All faculty with interest in specific areas can request the OFE to establish a faculty interest group (FIG) where they and other faculty can meet, share, network, and grow in their skills, knowledge, and understanding. The following FIGs have been created. They are active to the extent that faculty participate in them.
In its effort to foster and support the success of all faculty, including emerging faculty, The Office for Faculty Excellence provides programs and resources and works with other units and offices. Mentoring of new and
emerging faculty, as they learn from experienced faculty and staff is an
important part of our mentoring effort. But we recognize that even the most experienced faculty are expanding their understanding and need mentoring from experienced people in new areas of interest. The Merriam-Webster
Webster Dictionary defines a mentor as "a trusted counselor or
guide." We believe a mentor in one area is often a “mentee” in another area.

Teaching with Technology Summer Workshop and Mentoring Program
This especially designed one-week summer program was offered for the first time during Summer 2010. The program provided approximately 20 faculty support in their development of a new online or hybrid course or the revision of a current one. Participants worked with staff and five faculty mentors who continued to support the faculty during implementation in the fall semester. The program will be offered each summer if funds allow. If interested, faculty are asked to complete the online interest form.
