2019-2020 Core Faculty Handbook

Faculty Professional Development and Scholarship


Core faculty have expanded roles within the University, including clear expectations of teaching, service, and scholarship. The University provides various opportunities to support the professional development that will deepen all aspects of these core faculty expectations.

The Dean of Faculty, through the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship (CTLS) coordinates and develops programs and funding to support faculty teaching and scholarship. This support includes Faculty Development Days and Community of Scholars Day, in addition to the sabbatical and development grant processes described below. Information for and about faculty and faculty professional development can be found on the Provost web page (lesley.edu/faculty-staff/provost/dynamic-forms-for-faculty) as well as the Faculty Development Community on myLesley.
