Faculty and Academic Career Enhancement

Recognized among the foremost programs in the nation, the Department of Faculty & Academic Career Enhancement (FACE) has been engaged in talent management since 1998. We are dedicated to enhancing the careers of our faculty. The scope of the many FACE programs that support our faculty has grown tremendously. The growth of our programs reflects the institutional commitment to our faculty and the demand for access to the skills and knowledge required by high-performing faculty. The extensive and highly collaborative programming, events and seminars offered by FACE covers skills in communication and other issues of professional and career development, faculty health and well-being, and the development and enhancement of our faculty as leaders.
