Message from the Exe. Director


We are pleased to welcome you to the Office of Faculty Development and Assessment (OFDA). The office serves to facilitate continuous improvements in the academic culture by providing a centralized platform for supporting faculty.  The OFDA also conducts workshops on innovative teaching pedagogy, support the development of projects that align with the university’s mission, encourage quality assessment practices, and offer a variety of resources to support the teaching and learning journey. Through a unique and innovative set of educational experiences, known as the CDU Advantage, Charles R. Drew University develops health professionals who become leaders, advocates, and activists for underserved populations. Our role is to offer continuing support of faculty by developing and providing curricular approaches that maintain this educational advantage.

In visiting our website, you will learn about exciting news, resources, and the many opportunities available here at Charles R. Drew University’s Office of Faculty Development and Assessment.  Come join us in the place where “Extraordinary teaching experiences” result in “Extraordinary student outcomes.”

Again, welcome and together we can enjoy the journey!
