A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :

The Center for Teaching Excellence at UNK promotes an ongoing discussion about teaching and learning. Teaching is viewed as a serious intellectual endeavor that requires continued professional development and scholarly research to promote and maintain excellence.

UNK uses a “grow your own” program hiring those working toward a terminal degree. A win-win situation, individuals are working while completing the degree and the University gains a well-qualified and experience employee.

Faculty Exchange Program - Faculty-led study abroad programs (UNK Semester Abroad Programs) exist in China and Peru. Additionally, UNK Faculty have the opportunity to lead the UNK-based (Nebraska Semester Abroad) program which is offered each Spring semester in the Czech Republic.

These are agreements with no formal requirements of equal time exchanged or equal faculty level exchange (ie. a PhD for a PhD.)
