Osaka University has just started programs for newly hired teachers based on the new concept since 2017. Faculty development programs traditionally have covered mainly teaching and learning. However, society needs us more holistic approach for it. This programs cover four functions of faculty; education, research, social engagement and leadership. These are addressing the four scholarships by Boyer (1997). For offering these contents, the teaching and learning support center is trying to make new connection with other organizations within institutions. It is now time to reconsider the concept and approach of faculty development.
