The workshop will bring together teams of three to five faculty members and administrators from institutions that are interested in creating or modifying current faculty development programs to reflect the need to continue to emphasize the faculty development of post-tenure faculty. The three days will consist of plenary lectures presented by facilitators associated with CUR interspersed with individual team meetings with CUR mentors. Nancy Mills from Trinity University (nmills@trinity.edu) will coordinate the Institute.

Teams typically consist of at least one academic administrator and several interested faculty members. The Instititue is open to academics from all fields. The Institute begins at 1:00 pm on Friday and ends at noon on Sunday. Deadline for application is January 18, 2006. Registrations received after January 18th will be accepted provided space is still available. However, the CUR Institutes do fill up rapidly so apply early!
