Faculty members serve as the critical link between the University and its students. In partnership with the United Faculty of Florida (UFF), the Office of the Provost is committed to providing faculty members with an environment where inquiry, diversity, and novelty is supported and encouraged. With student success and the advancement of knowledge as their beacon, distinguished faculty push the boundaries of innovation in teaching and pursue rigorous research and scholarship agendas.
Please take the time to learn about the numerous awards and grants conferred on our faculty for their scholarship and teaching activities. We also invite faculty to review the Faculty Handbook, 2011-2014 Collective Bargaining Agreement ,Faculty Performance Evaluation Document, and Faculty Senate Minutes for critical information on faculty affairs.
