Connect, Support, Inspire, and Engage

The Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE) is guided by the principles of the Ithaca College strategic plan, IC 20/20, to inspire organizational growth and change toward an integrated, holistic approach to higher education. We do so through opportunities for faculty, staff, and administrators to connect with each other in a process of continuous professional development. We provide support for the IC Community to work individually and collaboratively in order to enhance their efforts in teaching, research, and service. Because learning happens everywhere, we promote evidenced-based pedagogies that cultivate student engagement, learning, and academic success.

Faculty Excellence Awards Call For Nominations!

The Center for Faculty Excellence and the Faculty Development Committee seek nominations for Ithaca College’s annual Faculty Excellence Awards. We will offer six, $1,500 awards. In the spirit of the promotion of diversity and inclusion, we also welcome the nomination of faculty of color, women and gender non-binary faculty, LGBTQ+ faculty, faculty with disabilities, and part-time and full-time contingent faculty. The deadline for all supporting materials is Monday, February 26, 2018.

In addition to our programming, we offer faculty a variety of resources and award opportunities, from teaching resources on inclusive teaching and course design, to our Small Grants Program for Course Development or Redesign. Are you developing or redesigning a course that incorporates or is focused on issues of equity, diversity, or inclusion or concerns international/cultural issues? If so, please consider applying for the CFE small grant for course development. The program provides small grants of up to $300 to individual faculty members to help defray the costs of books, other print materials, digital resources such as DVDs or other electronic resources, and laboratory supplies. Material purchases are limited to items that are directly related to the development or redesign of the course. The program is not intended for use by faculty in their quest for advanced degrees. Early career and ALANA faculty are strongly encouraged to apply.
