Quality Teaching, Research, and Service
In Fall 2015, 439 regular full-time and 288 part-time adjunct faculty members contributed to UTC’s core elements of Teaching, Research, and Service, and our need for quality faculty members continues to grow! Our dedicated faculty members have been featured in numerous news articles, recognized in distinguished academic journals and received hundreds of thousands of dollars in grant funding for their research projects.
Our faculty are committed to continuing research, and are routinely awarded grants that help our university thrive! In fact, UTC is expecting over 6 million dollars in grant awards in the 2017 Fiscal Year. We are proud of all our faculty members who apply for awards and who continue to work diligently in creating a competitive and inspirational campus for our students!
Faculty members receive lots of support from UTC to help them succeed both in and out of the classroom. The Grayson H. Walker Center for Teaching and Education provides Faculty with hands-on training and assistance for faculty members in developing online courses and manage classroom technology to stay on the cutting edge of helping students learn in a multitude of ways as emphasized in UTC’s Strategic Plan.
The Walker Center also provides classroom observation services to help faculty members develop their teaching and classroom delivery skills, seminars on how to make instruction materials more accessible for learners with disabilities and improve success with recording grades online, and even provides orientation for both regular and adjunct faculty each semester to assist new UTC faculty members to acclimate to the campus culture.
