Our Faculty Is Our Single Greatest Asset

At University of Maryland University College (UMUC), we strive to ensure our faculty receives the teaching experiences they are diligently pursuing.

A number of important ingredients go into faculty success. Our experience is that those who participate actively are more successful in the classroom and get the most out of being a UMUC faculty member. This is why we offer you the UMUC Advantage.

Superior Training, Technology, and Support: Learn how to teach online through our New Faculty Academic Orientation course. There is also more professional development opportunities available through our Faculty Development.

Benefits: UMUC offers benefits for adjunct faculty and 12-month collegiate faculty.

Peer Representation: UMUC’s shared governance structure includes adjunct faculty member representation on the Faculty Advisory Council.

We strongly encourage you to participate in our faculty training and development programs and in other UMUC activities, which can be found on our Web site. The navigation links on the left are useful if you have any questions or concerns about your teaching experience at UMUC.

We want you to know that we are fully committed to helping you in the classroom, whether that classroom is on-site or online.
