In the paper the author’s strategic vision of how to use faculty development in changing the culture of Ukrainian higher education so that to create productive teaching and learning environment has been suggested. The investigation has been presented as a comparative study of faculty development practices at Michigan State University (USA) and a number of Ukrainian higher institutions.

The results of the investigation are the key guidelines and principles to be undertaken to make the integration of MSU model into Ukrainian educational environment possible. The author’s idea also implies that it’s not only the resources and funding that a Ukrainian university lacks on the way to successful FD program launching, but it’s more of the attitudinal reason that needs to be mended in the mind of university faculty.
