Faculty Enrichment Center hosts open forums

Faculty encouraged to attend and share ideas

UC's Faculty Enrichment Center is hosting Open Forums March 27 and 28 to gather feedback about the development of the Faculty Enrichment Center (FEC).

The FEC hosted open forums in the Spring of 2018 as a needs-assessment to gather input on the type of space and programming faculty would like to see in the center. Now, the FEC Task Force wants to follow up and update on the progress made over the last year.

“We hope that we’ve created a space that really captures faculty’s needs, interests and desires for the space. We would like to meet with the faculty to show them the development plans and an update on the physical space — even actual furniture that will be in the center,” says Keisha Love, associate vice provost for faculty development and special initiatives and interim director of the FEC.  

The Task Force has identified the four focal points of the center: career advancement and leadership, interdisciplinary collaborations, diversity and inclusion, and social connectivity. The Task Force wants to use the forums to gain input on what types of programming faculty would like to see in each of these areas.

These forums provide a space to:

  • Share your ideas
  • Ask questions
  • Provide feedback

Love says these forums are an opportunity to get key updates about the development of the physical space, to learn about new programming ideas and for faculty to be able to provide input and ideas on specific programs they would like to see through the center.
