Volunteer Faculty Partnership: The Dean's Faculty program actively recruits volunteers to assist with the School of Dentistry's research, service and teaching activities. Members of this essential program are alumni, community practitioners and recently retired dental professionals. Volunteer faculty allows the sharing of knowledge and practical experience with aspiring dentists and dental hygienists.
Last year, volunteer faculty donated over 20,000 hours to the program. the number of hours contributed is equivalent to $1.5 million in faculty salaries. The cost savings realized from the Dean's Faculty program is a significant added value in tough economic times.
