Faculty Development Center

"Building a Faculty of Distinction to Prepare Males for Enlightened Leadership in the 21st Century Global Community"

The purpose of the Faculty Development Center (FDC) is to promote and sustain excellence in faculty instruction and research through faculty development and retention, and outreach. In support of the mission of the College "to develop men with disciplined minds who will lead lives of leadership and service" the FDC seeks to facilitate the continued professional development of Morehouse faculty as teachers and scholars who motivate students to participate actively in their own education and guide them on their way to becoming critical thinkers and life-long learners.

The FDC will introduce new faculty to the culture of excellence in teaching and scholarship at Morehouse College, provide guided resources to assist faculty in the preparation for promotion and tenure, and support the continued development of senior faculty. The FDC will make available to the global higher education community the College's expertise in the area of effective pedagogy, learning outcomes, and student assessment, with special emphasis on the teaching and development of African American males.
