Administrative History

The Faculty Center (est. 1992) at Brigham Young University is an institution to assist the university faculty members in the proper training and building of essential skills.

Founded in January 1992, the Faculty Center was intended to develop a broad range of faculty skills, especially to support faculty teaching and learning by orientation, support, feedback, and training. It was moved from the Heber J. Grant Building to the Wilkinson Student Center in May 1998.

The Faculty Center operates under a Director, an Associate Director, and several Assistant Directors with jurisdiction over specific areas. Donald K. Jarvis served as the founding director with J. Bonner Ritchie as the its first Associate Director and D. Lynn Sorenson as Assistant Director. By March of the following year, Louise M. Illes was serving as Assistant Director; in 1996, David A. Whetten took over as Director. Russell T. Osguthorpe was added as Associate Director the following year, while A. Jane Birch and Trav D. Johnson were serving as Assistant Directors. By 2001, Terrance D. Olson was serving as Associate Director, followed in 2004 by Robert L. Millet and James E. Faulconer. They were followed in 2007 by R. Kent Crookston and in 2008 by Alan Wilkins.

Presently, the Center is operated by Director David A. Whetten, Associate Directors Alan Wilkins and R. Kent Crookston, and Assistant Director for Faculty Development A. Jane Birch. Under their direction, the Faculty Center continues to explore new ways to support teaching, scholarship, citizenship, and collegiality.
