Institutional Membership Benefits

Faculty Success Program

This program is open to non-tenure* and tenure-track faculty at the assistant and associate professorship ranks who would like to maintain and improve their research productivity and time management. The program will use coaching, peer support and accountability to help faculty reach their goals. The Office for Faculty Advancement provides schools with matching funds for faculty participation. Interested faculty should contact their departments and schools for approval. The OFA works directly with schools to enroll approved faculty.

* Non-tenure faculty must have the following qualifications: 1) have completed their terminal degree (most commonly their Ph.D.) and are currently in a long-term contract or permanent position at their institution; and 2) their current roles shares significant similarities with common tenure promotion considerations (with a heavy emphasis on research and publication) and the overall timeline is shared with common tenure-track positions.

Post-Tenure Pathfinders Program

FSP alumni who are ready to reflect and move forward in the next chapter of their career are invited to participate in Pathfinders. The program is designed to provide a space for a group of faculty at the associate professor rank to pause, engage in a discovery process about what's possible in their next chapter, and build the support network necessary to move powerfully in that new direction. The Office for Faculty Advancement provides schools with matching funds for faculty participation. Interested faculty should contact their departments and schools for approval. OFA works directly with schools to enroll approved faculty in the program.
