Faculty development is crucial for institutions which are becoming more student-centered and need to be more accountable to the public. As a career, it is rewarding and exciting. And yet, most people in the field entered it without proper training or a qualifying degree and have faced a steep learning curve when they were starting out.
The Institute is designed to answer questions asked by new faculty developers and to provide the resources to get them started in planning, developing, and managing programs that will be effective in strengthening teaching and learning on campus.
The Symposium of Student Scholars is an event to showcase student scholarship conducted at KSU during the past year. In past years, we have had a wonderful diversity in the projects presented, including readings of new works by budding authors, performance of new compositions by the musically inclined, explanations of curricular innovations by prospective educators, innovative business models by future entrepreneurs, urban landscape analysis by potential geographers, and scientific research papers.
