Please also connect via the Community of Practice for Faculty Affairs Professionals, a listserv and forum for faculty affairs professionals in higher education to discuss and share information, ideas, and best practices. Our goal is to identify and develop ways to support faculty success throughout the faculty career arc.  Although initially created to support communication among public land-grant institutions, this list is open to all faculty affairs professionals, regardless of institutional type. The listserv is hosted by Iowa State University.
