Calendar of Events

February 2013

The following sessions are hosted and sponsored by a variety of teaching academies, colleges, centers and offices at the University of Illinois.

The University of Illinois is now an institutional member of the
National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD).  This site provides all Illinois faculty, post docs and graduate students access to the NCFDD’s resources. Many UIUC faculty are already interacting in some way with the Center, and we have received very positive feedback from them. To take advantage of our institutional membership, one needs only to sign-up here. Please direct any questions to Tony Liss at tml@illinois.edu.
