BYU Faculty Center undergoes reorganization, has new focus

The Brigham Young University Faculty Center has recently undergone changes in its organizational structure in order to better support BYU faculty.

The new Center for Teaching and Learning — formerly the Center for Instructional Design — is now serving the comprehensive teaching needs of faculty, including the teaching support formerly provided by the Faculty Center.

The Faculty Center will now focus its efforts on other important professional development needs of faculty and administrators.

While the Faculty Center will continue to provide a wide variety of programs and resources to support the needs of new faculty, increased attention will now be devoted to assisting mid- and later-career faculty in their professional development. The center will also provide support for department chairs, associate deans and deans in their administrative roles.

To help accomplish these goals, Kent Crookston, former dean of the College of Biology and Agriculture (now Life Sciences), and Jenith Larsen, former visiting faculty in the Department of Psychology, have joined the Faculty Center team of David Whetten, director; James Faulconer, associate director; Jane Birch, assistant director; and Muriel Allen, secretary.

Faculty and administrators can look to the Faculty Center for resources to help them in significant aspects of their careers, including scholarly productivity, citizenship and service, career development, time and stress management, leadership skills and the appropriate integration of faith and intellect in teaching and scholarship.

The Faculty Center, located at 4450 Wilkinson Student Center, welcomes ideas and suggestions in its expanding efforts to support faculty.To learn more about the Faculty Center, visit http://fc.byu.edu or e-mail faculty_center@byu.edu.
