Identity and Statement of Purpose

Samford University recognizes and celebrates the tremendous talents, skills and abilities of its faculty body. The Samford University Faculty Success Collaborative (FSC) is a formal advisory committee convened by the provost representing all academic units at Samford University, that identifies and coordinates development opportunities in conjunction with a variety of internal and external stakeholder groups. Faculty success and continuing professional development is internally driven by the FSC through a process that is responsive to emerging trends and opportunities in higher education. The FSC fully embraces the developmental needs of all faculty in the three domains of a faculty member’s roles and responsibilities as it pertains to teaching, service, and scholarship, as well as personal wellbeing. Face-to-face programming, enduring content and other resources are provided to support faculty at all stages of their career.
