The Center for Faculty Excellence is excited to announce its newest CFE Faculty-In-Residence—Dr. Susan Girdler. Dr. Girdler brings vast expertise and experience in faculty development and in faculty mentoring, and plans to develop resources and programming in these areas as part of the CFE’s Excellence in Faculty Development and Mentoring initiative. In addition to experience as a faculty mentor, Dr. Girdler co-leads her department’s junior faculty mentoring program, has led the School of Medicine’s Mentoring Task Force, and, along with Drs. Jaye Cable, Patricia Parker and Donna Surge, has convened a Carolina Seminar on development of targeted research mentoring strategies toward retention of women in STEM fields. Her commitment to faculty excellence is strong, and we are looking forward to her work with us.
The CFE Faculty-In-Residence program provides faculty an opportunity to explore and contribute a CFE initiative or area of focus, with support for commitment to an academic year or more with the CFE. Dr. Girdler joins Dr. Steve Buzinski as a CFE Faculty-In-Residence. Dr. Buzinski’s focus has been on increasing faculty appreciation and experience in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).
