Spotlight on Faculty Service
The Spotlight on Faculty Service release coincided with the Hostos Day of Service in April 2012. Faculty service refers to the ways in which Hostos faculty serve their departments as intellectual and creative leaders on initiatives related to improving teaching and learning. After the President’s Office rolled out the Hostos Strategic Plan “Rooted in Our Mission, Compass to the Future: The HCC Strategic Plan 2011-2016” it became apparent that Goal 2, “Campus and Community Leadership” and Initiative 2 (Build Faculty Management Skill Sets and Leadership) could potentially shine a light on the value and rewards of faculty service. The value and reward for faculty service has received less attention in terms of professional development programming in the Center’s calendar of activities. When the President’s Office announced a Day of Service, CTL decided to shine a spotlight on the activity of faculty in pursuit of department and division perfection. Eleven faculty volunteered to be a part of the first Spotlight on Faculty Service. Additionally, each faculty banner was shown on the digital monitors spread throughout campus.
