Welcome to the Office for Faculty Affairs and Development (OFAD). Our mission is to ensure that SMPH faculty have the resources, skills, and competencies they require to lead successful and fulfilling professional lives.
Our office is responsible for providing professional development programming to advance the careers of faculty on all tracks and all campuses. We accomplish this by creating and implementing various faculty development events and programs that are available to SMPH faculty members. In addition, we also support the development of SMPH processes and policies related to faculty.
Using various tools like a needs analysis and consensus building with stakeholders, we identified six focus areas that we posit are key for professional success and fulfilment as shown in the model below. Our Faculty Central Resources are organized to highlight these areas:
Knowledge in these areas are designed to assist faculty in fulfilling the SMPH vision and mission by providing professional development opportunities for faculty across all missions and departments in the school in all tracks.
The events page is the place to find faculty development events throughout the year.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or concerns related to your role as an SMPH faculty member.
