CHSS Faculty Resources

The College of Humanities and Social Science is committed to helping all faculty flourish as scholars, instructors, and colleagues. The Dean’s Office offers programs, services, and resources to assist faculty in finding meaning and purpose in their work lives by:

  1. Cultivating a shared college value of respect and the importance of equitable workplaces for all faculty type and ranks.
  2. Creating a college collegial culture that supports and values the achievements of a diverse faculty.
  3. Nurturing faculty through their professional career by providing mentorship, leadership development, and resources for career exploration.
  4. Guiding faculty and academic unit heads to support faculty development across their career spans.

To achieve these goals for faculty, CHSS Dean's Office has a variety of program, awards, and resources for faculty. We encourage you to explore our website.
