About Building a Culture of Faculty Success
A success-oriented strategy to faculty development can build morale, boost retention, and support faculty career advancement. A strengths perspective emphasizes and promotes the excellence of faculty at each stage of their career trajectory - from candidacy as an applicant to promotion to full professor and beyond. It acknowledges and rewards the unique strengths of each professor and seeks to empower them by focusing on and enhancing their capabilities through coaching and mentoring. An assets model also gives high priority to work-life balance and wellness. This paradigm can be a powerful means of increasing faculty retention and well-being and stands in stark contrast to strategies that focus on perceived faculty deficits.

Learn more about how this approach may fuel your community engaged scholarship agenda and how we may collaboratively shape and support a culture of success to advance community engaged scholarship at UTEP.

Facilitated by Mark Lusk, Provost’s Faculty Fellow for Civic Engagement and Azuri Gonzalez, director of the Center for Civic Engagement
