Welcome to the Faculty Development Center

What We Provide

The Faculty Development Center (FDC) offers support, resources, and services for CSUDH faculty. We help faculty to achieve excellence, integration, and satisfaction in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service throughout their careers. The major services we provide are teaching and scholarship to support the university's strategic planning goals, student engagement for student-centered learning, curriculum design, first year experience, and peer mentoring.

The FDC website offers a one-stop resource for faculty with inter-division information and services. During the academic year, the Faculty Spotlight will showcase faculty profiles in recognition of unique and special contributions by our colleagues. Other services provided are professional development resources for faculty development, listing of events and activities with RSVP information, and webinar links for training opportunities.
