University of Missouri Faculty Scholars
The 2016-2017 University of Missouri Faculty Scholars program has completed its first retreat, the cohort is pictured below at the Lodge of the Four Seasons. This program is designed to assist faculty as they adjust to their new academic responsibilities and environments, to introduce them to innovative teaching methods, to support them in their scholarly work and to provide opportunities for them to network within their own campus as well as across the four campuses of the University of Missouri System. The program is dedicated to promoting the success of new faculty by providing support through retreats, monthly forums and opportunities to interact with experienced faculty who have achieved success at the university.
A crucial focus of the program is increasing faculty retention and productivity by building collegial relationships. The UM Faculty Scholars program aims to help new faculty form teaching and research alliances that create a sense of belonging and foster opportunities for collaboration.
The UM Faculty Scholars is an exciting effort!
