Center for Leadership & Professional Development

The Center for Leadership and Professional Development (CLPD) strives to provide coordination and support to the faculty and professional staff at all points in their career and in all the aspects of faculty life, be it teaching, scholarship and service. The CLPD participates in and monitors the creation of functional shared governance processes and coordinates faculty involvement in policy making for those policies directly affecting faculty activities. The CLPD supports excellence in teaching and learning at Morehead State by:

  • Identifying and implementing new initiatives needed to support the professional development and teaching excellence of faculty;
  • Encouraging faculty to apply scholarly methods to enhance the effectiveness of instruction with a variety of student constituencies;
  • Promoting the concept that teaching and learning are lifelong efforts that occur throughout one’s career and lifespan;
  • Encouraging collaboration and sharing of expertise;
  • Identifying strategies for enhancing student learning both within and outside of the traditional classroom, and helping faculty and staff implement those strategies.

  • Coordinate mentoring activities for first-year faculty;
  • Facilitate individual mentoring for experienced faculty;
  • Arrange for presentations and workshops; 
  • Maintain a calendar of faculty development activities through the university web site; 
  • Develop a collection of books, articles, bulletins, and other resources related to the scholarship of teaching and learning;   
  • Foster collegial interaction through bodies such as the CPE's Faculty Development Work Group; 
  • Coordinate showcases of faculty teaching approaches.

These services are intended to help faculty:
