Our mission

The central mission of Faculty Development at Eastern Illinois University is to develop and enable excellent faculty to provide high quality service and leadership across the University's integrated missions of teaching, research, scholarship and creative activities. The aim is to promote overall faculty excellence, morale, and collegiality and to facilitate superior and timely responses to changing external and internal circumstances and priorities.

Faculty Development reports directly to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. We exist to serve the faculty of Eastern Illinois at every stage of their careers.
