The Group on Faculty Affairs Program Planning Committee is now accepting proposals for podium and poster presentations for the 2018 GFA Summer Professional Development Conference held July 13-15, 2018, at the St. Louis Union Station in St. Louis, MO. This year’s program will include a range of topics fundamental to our work. At the same time, to make the conference as useful as possible for attendees with a wide range of experience in their roles, we will feature a number of presentations led by some of our most seasoned colleagues, drawing on their experiences and perspectives to meet current challenges and help our faculty — and ourselves — prepare for the future. As always, there will be plenty of opportunities to network and build new collaborations with peers from across the country.
We especially welcome submissions in the following content areas:

  • Faculty and Professional Staff Development
  • Leadership Development
  • Recruitment, Retention, Procedures, and Tenure
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Organizational Culture, Development, and Assessment
  • Faculty-related Policies, Practices, and Governance
  • Communications
  • Faculty Wellness and Burnout
  • Other topics relevant to GFA faculty and staff leaders
