Faculty Development and Enhancement

Faculty are our greatest resource, and as such, we need to support them through their career life development.
The Office of Faculty Development and Enhancement, in conjunction with the Teaching and Faculty Support Center and the Office for Research and Economic Development, is responsible for assisting faculty with their research and teaching commitments, as well as work-life balance. Our focus is on creating a supportive and encouraging environment for faculty members to grow professionally.
"The greatness of the university rests on the continued development and enhancement of the faculty."- Dr.  Ro DiBrezzo, founder UA Office of Faculty Development and Enrichment.


Through a diverse range of programs, we hope to assist our faculty in their development as teachers, scholars, and practitioners. The position of the vice provost for faculty development and enhancement was established by the provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs to address the multitude of professional and scholarly needs of the entire faculty community at the University of Arkansas.

Dr. Kathryn A. Sloan serves as the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs. She can be reached at ksloan@uark.edu.
