Announcing the Center for Faculty Development Fall 2018 Schedule

This year, we will be recognizing those who attend any three CFD workshops during the year (from August 15, 2018 until June 30, 2019) with a certificate and a letter to the faculty member's dean and department chair attesting to their involvement.
