National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD)

 

Supported by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, Iowa State is an institutional member of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD). The NCFDD is an independent faculty development center dedicated to supporting academics in making successful transitions throughout their careers. The resources are free-of-charge and useful for all employees (faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows) and graduate students.


The Faculty Success Program is NCFDD’s highly rated and successful twelve-week, online mentoring program designed to teach tenure-track and tenured faculty the skills they need to increase both their research and writing productivity while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Participation in this program is open to all tenure-track faculty during one of three sessions (Fall, Spring, Summer). 

Summer 2022 Faculty Success Program Funding Support
In a continued program for Summer 2022, the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost will partially sponsor the participation of up to four tenure-track or tenured faculty in the Faculty Success Program by contributing $2500 toward total early registration costs of $4150. Priority will be given to early career faculty. Participants will be expected to cover the remaining program fees through other sources, e.g., matching funds from department or college, professional development funds, grant funds, startup funds, or other sources. Faculty sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost are expected to participate in and complete all components of the Faculty Success program.

To apply for this funding support, please fill out the short application form by March 10.

Questions may be directed to Katharine Hensley (khensley@iastate.edu).
