Faculty Development

Message from Director

Professional development is more than a responsibility: It’s a lifestyle. To be effective as faculty, we must stay on the cutting edge in our disciplines by keeping our skills sharp and our knowledge current. Having served as a faculty member at Chico State since 2003, I am passionate about helping faculty explore their full potential so they can be effective teachers and productive scholars.

The Faculty Development office exists to help faculty flourish as teachers, scholars, and leaders on our campus. We offer innovative and relevant programming including faculty learning communities, summer institutes, workshops, mentoring services, and conferences. We respond to the evolving professional development needs of the 1,000 faculty we serve.

The Faculty Development office belongs to the faculty of Chico State. Please let us know how we can best serve you on your journey here at Chico State.

The Director of Faculty Development, Josh Trout.
