Knox Faculty Development

The mission of Faculty Development at Knox College is to offer comprehensive support for faculty in all facets of their professional development: to help faculty refine and realize their own goals in the areas of teaching, scholarly and creative work, advising and service, and campus leadership. We assume that the challenges and rewards of an academic career stem from the potential for continued learning and growth at all times and in all areas of work. We also assume that our students and the academic world we inhabit are constantly evolving. Our aim is to help faculty meet the challenges of this ever-changing environment.
