Emory Report | April 19, 2018

Emory University, through the Office of the Provost, has become an institutional member of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD). 

Founded in 2010, NFCDD provides a range of programs to help faculty, and future faculty, to thrive in the academy. NCFDD approaches faculty success holistically, offering training and guidance on how to achieve tenure, how to write and publish work, as well as to manage stress and time.

NCFDD helps faculty through an online core curriculum consisting of webinars from their own and other faculty experts on topics such as planning each semester, mastering academic time management, cultivating mentors and learning to engage in conflict for transformation. NCFDD also offers online writing groups, multi-week courses, online mentoring forums and, for graduate students, a dissertation success curriculum. 

Access to the NCFDD services is available to all faculty, postdocs and graduate students at Emory. To activate your membership, go to https://www.facultydiversity.org/join , search for Emory University and sign in using your emory.edu email.
