This presentation will showcase faculty development programming designed to support and encourage the incorporation of civic engagement assignments within normal curricular offerings. This research assessed faculty development seminars at two comprehensive institutions, and identified the perceived benefits of faculty as well as where improvements might be made. The research utilized focus groups with participating faculty, and found several key factors for success. During this short presentation, I will share the factors as a model for universities wanting to develop programs to support faculty civic engagement efforts.
