The West Virginia Consortium for Faculty and Course Development in International Studies


The mission of FACDIS is to promote undergraduate teaching of contemporary international issues and foreign languages, and to provide educators with opportunities for professional development. By providing faculty with new knowledge and innovative teaching methods, information about new and varied course materials, and resources for audio-visual and simulation materials. FACDIS supports course development, revision and enhancement in West Virginia’s colleges and universities. There are currently 19 West Virginia institutions of higher education that are FACDIS Member Institutions.

Individual membership in FACDIS includes college and university faculty who teach in the state of West Virginia. Part-time and adjunct faculty are also eligible. Our only criterion for membership is that the faculty member teach one or more courses which include a foreign or international focus.
