Faculty Academy

GHC's Faculty Academy empowers new faculty members to develop creative solutions to challenges in the classroom, while working with commitees, and in their own scholarly work. New faculty members are required to attend Faculty Aademy for the first two years of their career at Georgia Highlands College but all faculty members are welcome to attend any and all sessions.
