The Center for Faculty Development supports the University’s mission of teaching and learning excellence by serving as a centralized resource for faculty development. 

Teaching and learning is at the heart of Metropolitan State University’s mission.   The work of the Center for Faculty Development reflects the University’s commitment to excellence in teaching and learning.  The University’s mission statement reads:  “The University is committed to academic excellence and community partnerships through curriculum, teaching, scholarship and services designed to support an urban mission.”  The Center for Faculty Development also strives to provide programming that aligns with the University’s Core Values of Excellence, Diversity and Inclusion, Engagement, Open, respectful Climate, and Integrity.
The Center for Faculty Development shares Metropolitan State University’s commitment to excellence in teaching and learning.  We honor this commitment by promoting teaching and learning as ongoing and collaborative processes of seeking new knowledge and skills, experimentation, and reflection. Our programs and services are available to the entire university’s teaching community, including full-time and part-time faculty, and other colleagues involved in supporting faculty and student success at Metropolitan State.

Center for Faculty Development staff members are dedicated to fostering a university community where outstanding teaching leads to significant and transformative learning.  We offer a number of programs and resources aimed to support teaching excellence, champion scholarly teaching, and foster connection among university faculty, staff, and advisers.  Specifically, we provide consulting services, new community and resident faculty orientations, events, reading and learning circles, collaborating with colleagues to plan and promote development opportunities, conferences, online and print resources, and work spaces for faculty at Metropolitan State’s campus and center locations.
