The Faculty Success Program

National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity Faculty Success Program

The Office for Faculty Advancement (OFA) 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.
