Faculty College

Faculty College Overview

Four professors seated at a table, one with laptopFaculty College brings small faculty teams together over the course of the academic year to plan, study, and develop innovative curricular and pedagogical ideas. It provides these faculty teams with the space, time, and resources to work collaboratively on projects such as:

  • new team-taught courses
  • a major change to a department's curriculum
  • new cross-disciplinary teaching endeavors

The focused time spent in Faculty College leads to critical improvements in, and spotlights the importance of, undergraduate education at Stanford.

The deadline to submit proposals for the 2014-15 program is February 15, 2014.
