Best Practices in Teaching and Learning
National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity
California Lutheran University is an institutional member of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD), an organization dedicated to supporting ALL faculty from adjunct to lecturer to tenure-track, tenured, and post-tenured.
Access a robust collection of DEIJ tools, including peer-reviewed articles, key organizations, and more.
See PDF slide decks from past presentations to faculty audiences.
View recordings and other resources related to professional development.
One of the great assets of a liberal arts college is to have easy access to so many different expertise. Learning about faculty's initiatives at Cal Lutheran (research or teaching wise) is not only inspiring but also a way of understanding how we can make use of the resources and offices at CLU.
