Faculty Resource Network

An academic partnership devoted to faculty development. Now in our fourth decade, we remain committed to this partnership, and to fostering connection, collaboration, and collegiality among our members.


The Faculty Resource Network holds in high regard its relationships with the many government and private organizations that have provided integral funding over the past four decades. Our funding organizations recognize our unique consortial model as one that alleviates the challenges often faced in fostering cross-institutional collaboration. Additionally, our funders appreciate that the partnerships created among faculty participants lead to advancements in teaching, research, and scholarship.
