Faculty Development Initiative

The APSU Faculty Development Initiative (FDI) structures campus interactions that can lead to student, faculty, institutional, or community success.

FDI fosters the development of a more adaptable and knowledgeable faculty capable of responding quickly to internal and external threats or opportunities. FDI organizes diverse tight-knit faculty cohorts to both strenthen the sense of campus community and establish networks for more sustainable cross-campus transfers of information and resources. Each FDI program encourages participants to reflect on their abilities for innovation and capacities for vision, organizes their connection with diverse campus representatives, and significantly impacts participants' time to encourage new behaviors and develop their capacities for new initiatives.

Selected faculty from diverse academic departments and colleges dedicate a significant time commitment to learning more about leadership, teaching, or advising. After acquiring a more comprehensive awareness of university operations, current initiatives, or trends, participants work as a team on a project to improve student, faculty, instutional, or community success.
