The CFI’s signature programs are boundary-spanning, high-engagement initiatives ranging from small and large-scale conferences (led by faculty for faculty) to intensive residencies and year-long communities. Inherently varied, signature programs are frequently touted by participants as transformative, inspiring, and career-affirming initiatives.

All CFI initiatives, especially our signature programs, are designed for faculty to make progress toward the following outcomes:
  • Feeling an increased sense of belonging to the JMU community;
  • Enhancing diversity and inclusivity through teaching, scholarship, and career development;
  • Engaging in reflective practices about their faculty roles;
  • Establishing and strengthening relationships with colleagues across disciplines, colleges, and ranks that support teaching, scholarship and/or career plans;
  • Developing holistic, integrated, and satisfying agendas in teaching, scholarship, and career plans that align with the values of academic units and discipline(s).
