Faculty Development

Supporting Faculty to Achieve Their Potential

Butler University faculty are committed to academic excellence; they offer students a challenging and supportive education; they practice service to the campus and in the world; and they cultivate an intellectual and social community.

The faculty development program supports faculty in achieving their own potential as teachers, scholars, researchers, and creative artists, and supports a faculty member's development as a thoughtful participant in the Butler community.

Faculty Resources

Through our Faculty Development program, resources are available covering assessment tools and course evaluations, peer-to-peer mentoring, and even a library of printed resource materials.

Calendar of Events

From our New Faculty programming to our Food for Thought and Brown Bag series, stay up-to-date on all the offerings for faculty development.

Program Offerings

Brown Bag Lunch Series for Research, Scholarship, and Creative Work

The Brown Bag Series provides an opportunity for Butler faculty to present their original research, scholarship, and creative work, aimed to speak to both departmental colleagues and those in completely different disciplines. Students, staff, and faculty are all welcome. Learn More.

Food for Thought Series

The Faculty Food for Thought series is centered around stimulating learning, both inside and outside of the classroom. Each informal lunchtime session will feature a presentation by Butler faculty or staff, followed by open discussion. Learn More.
