Loma Linda University supports faculty development in many ways. The University Faculty Council appoints the faculty development education committee with representatives from each of the schools. Committee members have special expertise and interest in teaching and learning.

The committee plans the campus Faculty Development Showcase Week designed to reward and showcase creative plans for teaching and learning by faculty throughout the University. These conferences are held every other year at the Centennial Complex, featuring poster presentations, workshops, educational technology exhibits, and keynote lectures.

Gail Rice, Professor of Allied Health Studies in the School of Allied Health Professions, chairs the Faculty Development In Education Committee. Each school is represented on the committee.
