Like students who disengage in coursework, faculty in Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) programs may take a passive approach, drop tasks, and skip events. Why do faculty disengage from professional development opportunities? Research suggests that CTLs do not equally serve all faculty, particularly BIPOC and women (Sotto-Santiago 2020). As CTLs return to in-person services, what strategies can we use to promote faculty engagement? In this session, participants will examine factors that influence the decision to drop out (Tinto 1975). For example, faculty may experience competing priorities between research obligations and teaching values, leading some to dropout. By highlighting the causes of attrition, participants will identify strategies for effective and equitable programming.
