National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD)
The NCFDD offers a wide variety of resources for faculty, staff, and graduate students.
Monday Motivator Newsletter
One of our most popular resources, the Monday Motivator is a weekly email that provides positive energy, good vibes, and a productivity tip. Each Monday Motivator is a micro-learning opportunity to reinforce the ideas presented in our Core Curriculum webinars.
NCFDD's Core Curriculum is designed to teach you the 10 key skills necessary to Thrive in the Academy. We define "thriving" as having extraordinary writing and research productivity AND having a full and healthy life off campus.
Guest Webinars & Multi-Week Courses
We offer a variety of Guest Expert Webinars designed to meet the needs of faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students. Our Multi-Week Courses are intensive series offered by expert facilitators to tackle the Academy's most pressing challenges.
Library of Previous Workshops/Webinars
The NCFDD provides a library of their previous workshops and webinars for members to view at any time. The library is updated each semester as content rolls over.
14-Day Writing Challenge
The 14-Day Writing Challenge is an opportunity for you to experiment with daily writing in a supportive community and a little dose of electronic love.
Dissertation Success Curriculum for Graduate Students
The Dissertation Success Program is designed for doctoral candidates who are focused on finishing their dissertation. The program is built on the assumption that there is only one way to complete a dissertation: write it!
