About The Academy
The UNC-CH School of Medicine Academy of Educators was founded in October 2006 as a part of the School’s strategic plan to enhance research and scholarship towards excellence in teaching. Currently, the Academy has two committees, Scholarship and Programming, and is overseen by a President, with support from the Immediate Past President and a Coordinator from the Office of Faculty Affairs & Leadership Development.
The Mission of the Academy is
- to promote and support excellence in teaching and the work and career paths of excellent teachers
- to promote and fund curricular innovation, evidence-based curricular change and a scholarly approach to the education mission; and
- to provide a forum for education leadership and advice for the Dean, Vice Dean for Medical Education and the leadership of the curriculum.
Recently, there have been a number of changes implemented to our by-laws, which can be found below.
