Pursuing a Culture of Excellence
In support of the University of Southern Mississippi’s mission, vision, and values,
the Center for Faculty Development prioritizes the pursuit of excellence in teaching,
research, leadership, and campus citizenship among the university community. The Center
aims to provide holistic opportunities for educational and professional development
by responding to current concerns and trends in higher education. The Center for Faculty
Development builds cross-disciplinary and cross-campus community through activities
and events that promote effective teaching, mentoring, exploration, and discovery.
2021 - 2022 First Year Foundations Program
The First-Year Foundations Program (FYF) expands the training and conversations that start at New Faculty Orientation. This series aims to support new faculty in their teaching, research, and overall success as a new member of our Southern Miss community. All sessions are offered in a hybrid format—new faculty can attend in person in the CFD (International Center 319) or via Zoom.
