Tenured associate professors and pre-tenure assistant professors are encouraged to apply for the 12-week Faculty Success Program through the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD). Applications are due by close of business Monday, March 6.

This program helps faculty develop the skills necessary to increase research and writing productivity while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. The program runs May 14-Aug. 5 and requires a commitment of at least 90 minutes to two hours each week to watch videos and complete assignments, as well as one weekly 75-minute synchronous session. For more information about the Faculty Success Program, visit the NCFDD webpage.

More information about the resources available to all faculty and graduate students through the NCFDD is available online. This webinar focuses on the Faculty Success Program starting at the nine-minute mark and features testimonials from alumni of the program including S&T’s own Dr. Daoru (Frank) Han, assistant professor of mechanical engineering (29:00), and Dr. Amber Henslee, associate professor of psychological science (42:00). 

The program costs $4,650 per person, but a limited number of full scholarships are available through the provost’s office. Applications for fully funded scholarships for the summer 2023 Faculty Success Program are now being accepted.
