The Andrew W. Mellon Center for Faculty and Curriculum Development is designed to enhance academic excellence throughout the IWU campus. Its resources and facilities offer support to the campus faculty as they pursue their work as teachers, scholars and curricular innovators. Center programs encourage reflective discourse and the sharing of views and experiences among faculty, as they relate to issues involving the theory and practice of teaching, course development, academic program design and scholarly inquiry.
Because the activities and programs involving faculty development and curricular innovation are inextricably linked, the Associate Dean and Associate Provost provide faculty with multiple levels of support for professional development and programmatic curricular innovation. The Associate Provost is responsible for administering travel and internal grants involving scholarly activity and curricular development, programs, and faculty leave.
The Associate Dean of Curriculum holds administrative responsibility for coordinating the University general education program, May Term, off-campus programs, the Writing Center, university-wide writing programs, and interdisciplinary programs. She is deeply involved in all university initiatives concerned with enhancing the strategic assessment, planning and development of curriculum, diversity, globalization, and sustainability, and student/faculty research.
