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.
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 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.
Each new faculty is highly encouraged to attend the face-to-face orientation. In this training, participants learn about our college culture and organization, faculty rights and responsibilities, and resources to support faculty and students.
The Faculty Commons is committed to providing equitable, relevant, evidence-based, and transformational faculty development opportunities to all instructors at Bellevue College. To that end, we offer a variety of workshops on developing and enhancing our inclusive practices at Bellevue College.
We are located on the Main Campus, D104.
