Connecting MSU Faculty

Center for Faculty Excellence: Part of the CFE mission is to provide "a place where people connect to share knowledge and skills that support each other’s growth." As part of this goal, we provide mentoring opportunities, group work in workshops and connect faculty interested in particular topics.

Connecting Underrepresented MSU Faculty

GATHER, which stands for Gathering All Together Honoring Every Race, is a network for faculty and staff from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups that provides opportunities to develop a sense of community, access mentoring and professional development, intentionally build support, and exchange ideas.
