Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) promotes deep learning in our students and prioritizes quality teaching among faculty. The Developing Excellence in Eastern’s Professors (DEEP) system builds on the faculty development initiatives offered at the University, including the Provost’s Professional Development Speaker series, Teaching & Learning Innovation (TLI) series, Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), and Faculty Innovators program to ensure that faculty development opportunities are available to all members of the University community.
Designed as an online system, DEEP provides an opportunity for all faculty and academic staff--full-time, part-time, and online--to pursue quality professional development at any time and from any location.
DEEP Week facilitates collaboration from across departments, colleges, and programs to support high-quality, engaging professional development for all members of the EKU community. Members of the University community are encouraged to participate in events as their schedules allow.
