CREATEngagement Resources


The CREATEngagement Checklist is intended for faculty members, department chairs and administrators as a tool to help guide thinking about how to create a more engaging faculty climate within the department or school. It provides a framework of five characteristics of a positive and engaging department/school climate, grouped together with actions supporting each characteristic. Individuals or groups can use this checklist to identify activities that already exist in the department/school and to think about others that might be employed to increase faculty engagement. It can be used as a discussion starter. Use in conjunction with CREATEngagement Toolkit.
