The Faculty Development Center collaborates with other departments on campus to provide orientation programs for new full-time and part-time faculty and co-sponsors the Provost’s New Faculty Lunch Series on topics of recurrent interest. We organize frequent Seminars and Workshops for faculty on specific teaching topics and other areas of professional development. Visit our Upcoming Events page or visit our myUMBC group for a list of events planned for the semester. Please note that registration via the myUMBC group is required for all FDC events to ensure adequate seating and lunch.
