About Us

The Dean of the College of Medicine has charged the Advisory Committee under The Office of Faculty Development and Diversity with enhancing the leadership capabilities of medical faculty through professional development.

The goal of the office is to link medical faculty to campus-wide opportunities and to create new opportunities, unique and responsive to the interests of the medical faculty. The program aims to support faculty in attaining excellence in the academic competency of their choice. A key goal for the Task Force was to formally establish the Office of Faculty Development (OFD). Now that the OFD is established, the Task Force will function as an advisory committee to the Office.
