Historical Note

The Teaching and Faculty Support Center of the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville was established in 1992. The goal of this organization is to serve as a resource for the faculty of the university to learn about new teaching techniques, facilitate their skills, and cultivate a higher quality of teaching. In 2002, the center was renamed the Wally Cordes Teaching and Faculty Support Center in honor of Dr. A. Wallace Cordes, a chemistry professor who had been with the university for nearly fifty years and helped co-found the center with Paul Cronan and Ro DiBrezzo. The center attempts to aid the faculty through a variety of annual workshops, retreats, trips, and other events. Much of the collection is made up of materials created for these annual events which span from small hour-long luncheons to multi-day teaching camps.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of reports, manuals, handouts, abstracts, and other materials related to workshops, retreats, and bus tours conducted by the Teaching and Faculty Support Center.

Arrangement of the Papers

Materials are arranged alphabetically and subsequently arranged chronologically.
