McMillen Appointed Director of Faculty Development

From the Provost
The December 6, 2007, Provost’s Corner described plans to appoint a half-time director of faculty development. A search was completed in late spring for the September 1, 2008, appointment.

I’m delighted to announce that Susan McMillen, associate professor in the Mathematics Department, has accepted the appointment. McMillen, an eight-year member of the college faculty, has a strong publication record and is a recipient of over $2 million in grants and contracts. Many of the grants focus on professional development for math educators. She is active in New York State and national professional organizations in math education. Her previous faculty appointments were at D’Youville College and at the University of Houston.

McMillen’s responsibilities will include dissemination of information on faculty development promoting a campus culture and programming in support of excellence in teaching, scholarship and service, and creation of a state-of-the-art learning and teaching center.
