Stellar Support

Connecting faculty members with the right people can build dynamic academic careers, and the Office of Faculty Advancement in the College of Engineering wants to make that happen. The office offers a four-day orientation workshop for new faculty, runs research proposal workshops, holds networking sessions and coordinates faculty visits to funding agencies.

The office is led by Dr. Joel Ducoste, interim associate dean of faculty advancement and professor in the Department of Civil, Construction, Environmental Engineering. He works to connect knowledge-seeking faculty members with those who can help them succeed. The Engineering Faculty Advancement website is your online entry point.

The college offers a range of other services to support professors and our professional staff.
