The Offices of Faculty Affairs & Faculty Development are here to help faculty successfully navigate academic life at CUSM. We partner with our departments to enhance their efforts and ensure that clear processes are in place to support faculty needs.


Our main areas of focus are:

  • Facilitating faculty appointments (initial ranking, orientation to faculty life, reappointment)
  • Supporting our faculty and departments in the promotion process
  • Fostering and sustaining faculty governance (faculty assembly and associated committees)
  • Maintaining and providing expertise on faculty policies, procedures and data
  • Encouraging faculty recognition through publication of achievements and awards
  • Producing faculty development programming in the domains of:
    • Teaching, pedagogy, and instructional design
    • Research and scholarship
    • Faculty service work
    • General professional growth
