Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence


At Tennessee Tech, we are committed to a supportive environment for our faculty, staff, and students. As stated in the university’s strategic plan, “Tech Tomorrow,” we are dedicated to providing a diverse and welcoming community, as well as a campus size and atmosphere that fosters personal attention and fit. This includes diversity. Resources directed to this effort include:

Programs and Events

CAFÉ Conversations - Diversity and Inclusion Series

To support faculty development in this area, we will be hosting CAFE Conversations with various members of campus throughout the fall and spring semesters. During each session, representatives from across campus will speak about topics related to diversity and inclusion. During our first two sessions, the directors from diversity and inclusion focused centers, offices, and departments across campus will provide information to faculty about current resources and activities in each of their respective areas. The conversations will also serve as an introduction to each of the areas that provide services to members of campus and provide an opportunity to talk with faculty on how they can partner with each area on strategic university initiatives to strengthen student success.
