Committee Composition

The committee consists of two tenured full professors, two tenured associate professors, three associate or full clinical professors, one assistant tenure-track professor and one assistant clinical track professor elected by the Assembly. The dean appoints one faculty member from any rank to serve as a member. Committee members will serve staggered three-year terms. The Director of Curriculum and Instruction will serve as an ex officio member. The Committee elects the chairperson for a two-year term and a vice chairperson, for a one-year term, from among the committee members. The vice chairperson does not automatically become chairperson upon completion of the chairperson’s term but may be elected as chair if there are still two years remaining in his/her term. Administrative support is provided by the Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs who serves as an ex-officio member.

Standing Committee Charge

As stated in the Constitution and Bylaws, it is the responsibility of the committee to monitor and identify needs related to faculty professional career development including, but not limited to: teaching, research and patient care. In response to identified needs for faculty development, the committee develops strategies for the creation, implementation and assessment of programs to successfully address those issues. The committee works closely with the Offices of Faculty Affairs, Education, Clinical Affairs and Research to carry out its charge.

Additional Charge from the Dean for 2013–2014

This year I am asking the Faculty Development Committee to specifically address the following:

  • Develop mechanisms for implementing the mentoring of junior faculty appointed on the clinical track. Emphasis should be placed on the current guidelines for the mentoring of clinical faculty. Are these guidelines working? If not, why not? What can be done? How is this tracked by department and college?
  • Develop a listing of qualified mentors for both clinical and tenure-accruing junior faculty. This list should be provided to the college’s HR office and made available to all new faculty hires.
  • Investigate the needs of clinical track faculty, determine what needs are being met and what are not.
  • In conjunction with Human Resources within the College, develop and identify a process for welcoming new faculty and develop a checklist of topics and training to be included that identifies the person or office who is responsible for each step.
  • Identify, institute and evaluate faculty development initiatives for the fall and spring open weeks as well as the potential for development at various times throughout the year.
  • Address the issues of faculty career progression after promotion to associate professor or professor in both the tenure and clinical tracks. Emphasis here needs to be placed on senior associate professors who are not making progress toward promotion.
  • Provide advice and information to the Office of Faculty Affairs on faculty development issues.
  • Develop a simple survey to allow faculty to bring to your committee’s attention issues of concern and items that are working well.

This year, each standing faculty committee will be charged with reviewing relevant outcome measures from the new college strategic plan. The measures which should be reviewed by the Faculty Development Committee include:

  • Annual turnover rate for faculty/analysis of reasons for leaving
  • Annual demographic profile (number, percent) of faculty in terms of age, race/ethnicity, gender and rank.
  • Number and percentage of new women and under-represented minority salaried faculty hired each fiscal year by race/ethnicity, gender and rank.
  • Estimated number of women and URM in faculty applicant pools.
  • Number of FEO’s and sabbatical leaves applied for and completed.

The committee should evaluate performance on these measures and when appropriate, action plans for improvement should be instituted using the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle. The PDCA is the college’s model for outcomes assessment and evaluation.

Individual Faculty Member Responsibilities

Members of this committee are expected to attend a monthly meeting of the full committee lasting 1-2 hours. Additionally, members may be asked to assist with subgroup or project work at the chairperson’s discretion.

Estimated time commitment: 2-4 hours per month.

Schedule of Meetings

The Faculty Development Committee meets from 8:30–9:30 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
