Faculty Development

Introduction
An institution’s strategic plan projects its character and image. It communicates its mission, goals, and objectives. It is the organization’s blueprint for utilizing its skills and resources, directing its routine operations, and achieving its dreams and aspirations. It is its portrayal of its future, organized by distinct, determined actions for achieving a specified set of outcomes in keeping with the mission of the institution.

Mission Statement
Faculty Development & Research exists to stimulate and nurture a culture of scholarly inquiry and to provide opportunities for professional development and pedagogical improvement.
