 » Office of Faculty Affairs & Professional Development


The Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development is committed to partnering with academic departments and administration in order to effectively recruit, appoint, advance, and retain diverse faculty. This mission is achieved through educational programs, service, communication, and an environment of inclusive excellence, allowing our faculty members to reach their fullest potential.

Junior faculty from all JCESOM departments are invited to join Dr. Shapiro for a small-group dinner meeting. This is a unique opportunity for you to share your experiences as a JCESOM faculty member with the dean and some of your peers and to provide feedback, ask questions, and discuss general matters about the school.
