A Week-Long Conferernce
Professional Development for Faculty Who Teach Undergraduates

The NCA Institute for Faculty Development, also known as the "Hope Conference," is a week-long conference that offers professional development to faculty who teach undergraduates. Participants select two seminars and attend those sessions daily to learn new pedagogy, develop research or explore emerging topics with top scholar-teachers in their field. Attendees also gather for keynote presentations throughout the week. A scholar-in-residence facilitates discussions of scholarship and addresses research trajectories. In this intimate setting, faculty from across the country collaborate and build relationships through conversations and activities with fellow colleagues and seminar leaders. The institute provides inspirations as well as opportunities for personal and professional enrichment.
