supporting faculty
the center for scholarship and teaching

The Step Forward campaign seeks to create an endowed fund to ensure steady support for the college’s Center for Scholarship and Teaching, which oversees professional development opportunities, including the following priorities:

Endowed Chair for Center for Scholarship and Teaching
A new endowed professorship will be created to support the director of the Center for Scholarship and Teaching with the sole purpose of supporting and fostering excellence in teaching among faculty.

Support for New Faculty
A new endowed fund will provide mentoring, career planning, and guidance to new faculty, recognizing the importance of supporting professors early in their careers.

Additional Faculty Development Seminars
Additional seminars range from a program for tenured faculty who wish to deepen their involvement in Macalester’s decision making and governance process to a civic engagement program forging new connections between faculty members and local civic and community organizations.
