Departmental Facilitator Responsibilities & FAQ

Departmental Facilitator Responsibilities & Frequently Asked Questions

Table of Contents

Departmental (Dept.) facilitators assist and create synergy at the local level throughout the inclusive classroom annual training. The Department Chair/Unit Leader selects a faculty member to serve in their unit’s role and notifies CELT of their selection.

Facilitators’ responsibilities, their frequently asked questions, and the departmental facilitator rosters are on this page.


Departmental facilitators will receive a $500 professional development stipend* and a certificate of merit from the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost (SVPP) upon completion of the following:

Required components:

  • Assist in the Annual Inclusive Classroom Training
  • Attend at least two Inclusive Classroom-related programs
  • Complete the feedback gather survey (available in December)

Optional: Attend the pre-and-post information sessions or facilitators.

* Facilitators work with their departmental fiscal officer to obtain a General University (GU) worktag (account #) for CELT to transfer the $500 stipend to the person’s campus professional development account once all the required components are completed.
