Faculty Success Program

National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity Faculty Success Program

The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement (OVPFA) has partnered with individual academic units to support the participation of 9 regular rank faculty members in the National Center for Faculty Development’s (NCFDD) 2018 Faculty Success Program. This professional development program provides tenure-track and tenure faculty with strategies to increase their research productivity, get control of their time, and live a full and healthy life beyond our campus. Moreover, the program is meant to improve research productivity through intense accountability, coaching, and peer support and to propel their work-life balance and personal growth to a whole new level.
