The Office of Faculty Development aids the work of faculty at Lake Forest College through a focus on three priorities:
We support faculty at all stages in their careers in developing effective pedagogical techniques that create an inclusive learning environment for our diverse student body.
We assist faculty in creating and sustaining a community of colleagues who learn from and support each other.
We facilitate and celebrate faculty achievement in scholarly and artistic production.
