Faculty & academic staff development programs

The Office of Faculty and Academic Staff Development (OFASD) works with all faculty, academic staff, and academic administrators at Michigan State University as they join the university, establish professional trajectories and move through various stages of review, promotion and growth. 

The OFASD's leadership team is dedicated to advancing academic careers through inclusive, collaborative and experiential learning. Through workshops, flexible cohort programs and individualized mentoring, the OFASD helps faculty and academic specialists grow professionally in the intertwined areas of Teaching and Learning, Research and Scholarship, Academic Career Paths, and Leadership Development.
