Ouachita Baptist University provides excellent opportunities for the professional development of faculty members. The Faculty Development Committee initiates, coordinates, and makes recommendations concerning all aspects of development at OBU.

The committee consists of one faculty member from each of the seven disciplinary schools. The Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs serves ex officio without vote. The Director of Library Services serves when needed as liaison to the committee.

The committee shall (a) review and recommend policy concerning faculty development; (b) monitor implementation of policy; (c) solicit, receive, review, and recommend funding of faculty development proposals, including academic enrichment grants, growth plan grants, library grants, research grants, sabbaticals, and other opportunities that may arise; and (d) review the progress of university-funded development opportunities, research, and sabbaticals.

The Faculty Development Committee welcomes your input concerning existing opportunities and ways in which the entire program can be improved.

[If changes or updates need to be made to Committee sites, it is the committee chairs’ responsibility to submit them to the library’s webmaster prior to the start of each academic year.]
