Center for Faculty Excellence
The current mission of the Center for Faculty Excellence is:
To support high quality teaching and learning by engaging the faculty and academic leadership of Walden.
The CFE’s goal is to accomplish this through:
The design and delivery of professional development and training opportunities.
The collaborative review, development, and implementation of academic policy.
The collection and distribution of faculty performance information, to support quality assurance in the online classroom.
Advocacy on behalf of the faculty.
Communication with faculty.
Creating community building and networking opportunities for the faculty.
Processes for the development and revision of the mission statement are informal and initiated by the CFE Executive Director with input from all faculty members. When reviewing the CFE mission, it is compared and calibrated according to the main mission of the university, which is:
Walden University provides a diverse community of career professionals with the opportunity to transform themselves as scholar-practitioners so that they can effect positive social change.
