    Committee agreed to table the new Office of Faculty Enhancement (OFE) mission statement until next meeting.

     

    Discussion continued on one-stop shop for faculty development. Dan Richard pointed out that most of our aspirant institutions do not combine faculty development and technology. Specifically, Appalachian State and Portland State have combined programs; UNC Charlotte, Towson, James Madison, Miami (Oxford), UMBC, UNC Wilmington, and SUNY New Paltz all separate development and tech. Most of these schools have significantly more resources for development/tech than UNF.

    The committee also realized that during the previous QEP, a survey had been given to the faculty to determine their needs.

    Before going further, the committee agreed that examining these data was a good idea (Stephanie Race agreed to obtain these data). If necessary, we may develop an additional survey to determine what the faculty need. In either case, we want to get faculty feedback before proposing any plan for faculty development.

    As a result, the committee agreed to table the Provost visit until data had been taken into account.
