The UTMB Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development (OFAPD) was formulated in 2013.

The expanded Office of Faculty Affairs & Professional Development, implemented in 2018, has a mission to develop a diverse faculty community in which each of our four schools (School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Health Professions, and Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences) has the opportunity to make important contributions to enhance the careers of the faculty commensurate with the mission, vision, and values of UTMB.

The vision of the OFAPD is to establish and sustain a culture that promotes faculty diversity and inclusion in all four schools (SOM, SON, SHP, GSBS); plan and implement faculty development activities that enhance recruitment, appointment, retention, and promotion of faculty; serve as a central source for information pertaining to benefits and compensation, policies and procedures, and disseminates information about resources and opportunities to maximize the offerings for professional growth and development for all faculty; ensure consistency with the school's strategic plan and core values, optimizing resource allocation by aligning the mission(s) of the three Academies (Academy of Master Teachers, Academy of Research Mentors, and Academy of Master Clinicians).
