The Faculty Affairs Office of the SMHS develops, manages, and administers all activities involving the appointment, employment, advancement, and enhancement of the professional development of faculty of the School.
GW SMHS offers many career development opportunities for faculty members, including continuing education resources, development programs, and workshops and events to help you advance your career.
Resources are available from the Office of the Vice President for Research to provide faculty with information on GW research opportunities and training, applying to research funding opportunities, or managing extramural grants.
Academic promotion is awarded based on achievements over a period of several years. Planning and goal setting are important for success. While one’s area of academic passion may only lie in teaching, scholarship, or service, one-dimensional faculty do not meet criteria for promotion. It is important to be strategic in your career planning so that you may demonstrate professional effort and personal development in all three areas.
The Faculty Assembly plays a critical role in the governance of the SMHS by approving policies governing the academic programs and providing input to the School’s administration through its Executive Committee and Standing Committees.
