The Faculty Development Council works with the Office of the Provost to develop and promote programs relating to faculty roles and responsibilities in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service.  Activities include the Fall Faculty Symposium, the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Initiatives, and faculty conversations.  They serve as a liaison to SIUE faculty to identify faculty development interests and coordinate the dissemination of information of campus, state, and national initiatives concerning faculty roles and responsibilities.  The FDC encourages broad faculty involvement and open discussion within departments regarding faculty roles and responsibilities and coordinates these activities at college, school, and university levels.  The Council also provides oversight of the Excellence in Undergraduate Education Program (EUE) and works with the EUE Coordinator to develop program guidelines and review procedures as well as conducting periodic assessments of the EUE program.  The Teaching Excellence Awards Committee is a standing committee of the Faculty Development Council.

The FDC consists of at least seven faculty members who are elected members of the Faculty Senate, the Coordinator of Excellence in Undergraduate Education, a representative from the Provost's Office charged with faculty development, a representative from Information Technology Services (ITS), and other faculty development initiative representatives.  Additional members will be selected by the FDC to represent Schools and Departments not represented on the FDC by Faculty Senators.
