Policy

  1. Purpose

The CEETL Advisory Board is a faculty group that meets once a month, when the academic year is in session, with ex-officio administrative representatives and the CEETL faculty working together to monitor ongoing campus faculty development efforts and update their links to the CEETL, and to review and suggest initiatives and projects that will support and advance the CEETL, its programs and its mission to the San Francisco State faculty community. While the Advisory Board is specifically charged with serving as a liaison to the colleges and the library, providing advice and recommendations regarding ongoing CEETL activities, and providing an annual report to the Academic Senate, representatives often assume leadership roles in their colleges and use their position on the Advisory Board to help accomplish specific pedagogical and service goals. Faculty on the Advisory Board are elected to three-year terms. Faculty interested in serving on the CEETL Advisory Board should respond to the Call for Nominations issued by the Academic Senate in the spring semester, and follow the nominating procedures in order to be considered.

  1. Rationale Background Information about CEETL

The former Center of Teaching and Faculty Development (CTFD) has been reorganized administratively and will henceforth be directed by the faculty director who will oversee 4-8 part time faculty fellows, pending budget approval. The Faculty Director of the newly renamed Center for Equity and Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CEETL) will report to. the Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development, who will have a consultative role. The CEETL staff will report to the Executive Director of Academic Technology, who will have a consultative role. In addition, the CEETL has a mission to support faculty in all facets of their roles as teachers, as scholars and professionals, and as persons, at all stages of their careers. In carrying out its mission, the CEETL will work collaboratively with numerous other divisions on the SFSU campus including, but not limited to, Academic Technology, Faculty Affairs and Professional Development, the Division of Undergraduate Education and Academic Planning, the Division of Graduate Studies, Metro College Success Program and Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. The CEETL maintains responsibility for one of its primary endeavors: New Faculty Orientation. The CEETL will help to oversee the Faculty Retreat in conjunction with the Vice Chair of the Academic Senate.
