Faculty Development Programs
- A portion of the Howard
Hughes Medical Institute's grant to Haverford College
supports a Faculty Development Program, which consists of
a series of semester-long courses for faculty on an interdisciplinary
topic. Faculty from a range of departments meet weekly to
learn about current issues and developments in a specific
field and to develop new courses and course modules in this
area. The seminar also serves as an interdisciplinary forum
for faculty interaction.
