About CAFE

The Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence  (CAFE) is a new center for Missouri S&T which is devoted to promoting the success of Missouri S&T faculty as teaching-scholars at all stages of their careers. 

The inaugural chairs of the program are Larry Gragg, Chancellor's Professor of history, and Wayne Huebner, professor of materials science and engineering.

As part of an effort to gauge the state of faculty development on campus, CAFE chair Larry Gragg conducted interviews with more than 80 administrators and faculty. The results are available in this report: Gap Analysis on Faculty Development at Missouri S&T.
