The Faculty Commons provides different development opportunities led by Bellevue College faculty and staff. They are offered online, face-to-face, or hybrid. A stipend may be provided.
Mentoring and Advocacy
We organize a variety of mentoring and advocacy programs throughout each quarter. Mentors hold weekly office hours at the Faculty Commons and can be contacted by phone or email.
Community Building & Wellness
Community building promotes the connection of our faculty at other levels aside from pedagogical activities. We also partner with the Wellness Center to provide physical and mental wellness activities for our faculty.
New Faculty Orientation
Each new faculty is encouraged to attend the face-to-face orientation provided at least once a quarter. In this training, participants learn about our college culture and organization, faculty rights and responsibilities, and resources to support faculty and students.
Events at Faculty Commons
For our quarterly activities, workshops, and training, you can visit our Calendar. Events are scheduled daily, weekly, and monthly. Most of the events are on site but online and remote-access to onsite events are also available. Check the calendar often as events are being constantly added and updated.
