The Center for Advancement of Faculty Excellence (CAFE) supports the faculty and staff of the University of La Verne in their ongoing development, strategic initiatives, and continued pursuit of the core values of the institution. The role it plays is essential, particularly in the areas of faculty advancement and curriculum development. Students also benefit from the wealth of resources CAFE maintains.
CAFE offers a variety of programs, both certificate and non-certificate granting, for faculty and staff throughout the year. The certificate programs consist of course design, course instruction, and diversity competence. The non-certificate granting programs include workshops that focus on grant development and IRB support that are designed to expand and strengthen skills in each of these areas.
