Faculty Development Committee

The George Fox University Faculty Development Committee (FDC) was established in 1997 to facilitate professional development and effective teaching through research and to encourage faculty to make research results available to a public forum for professional consideration. Through a generous donation each year the FDC is able to fund a number of summer research grants, research leaves, and faculty writing workshops.
