Biographical/Historical Note

The Hubbard Center for Faculty Development at Appalachian State University is named in memory of its first Director, William C. Hubbard, who founded the Center in 1975. Originally founded as the Center for Instructional Development in 1975, the faculty development program at Appalachian State University has undergone two major reorganizations since that time. In 1986, it was named Faculty and Academic Development (FAD) and combined with Media Services and Instructional Technology to form the Faculty Development and Instructional Services Center (FDISC). The unit was renamed the Hubbard Center for Faculty Development and Instructional Services in 1991. In 1993 the technology areas were physically and administratively reassigned to another unit, and FAD was combined with Health Promotion and Counseling for Faculty and Staff (formerly the Employee Assistance Service) to form the Hubbard Center for Faculty and Staff Support. In 1995, an Organizational Development component was added to the programs of the Hubbard Center.
