UW has a partnership with the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD).

If you haven’t already activated your personal membership through our institutional partnership with NCFDD, you can join online now: www.facultydiversity.org/join.

As members of NCFDD, faculty (as well as post-docs and graduate students) have access to these resources: www.facultydiversity.org/membership.

In additional, NCFDD has developed a list of support resources specific to COVID-19: https://www.facultydiversity.org/covid19.

NCFDD offers an entirely virtual space where faculty can learn, connect with other NCFDD members, and access a variety of trainings based on their specific needs. The NCFDD’s online library offers 150+ webinars related to strategic planning, writing & research productivity, work-life balance, and more: https://www.facultydiversity.org/library?page=1.

For faculty members looking for additional support, NCFDD will hold its next Faculty Success Program (also known as the 12-week “bootcamp”) from January 16 – April 9, 2022 and registration is open now: https://www.facultydiversity.org/fsp-bootcamp.

The Office for Faculty Advancement may be able to offer one-third of FSP tuition if faculty apply for cost-sharing by October 11. (Typically, OFA offers cost-sharing for up to 10 UW faculty per FSP cohort, with priority given to faculty preparing for tenure or promotion review.) To apply for cost-sharing, faculty should send an email to Simone Willynck (slwillyn@uw.edu), Manager in the Office for Faculty Advancement, with a brief proposal that includes the following required information:

  • Copy of their 3-page CV
  • One-page description of how their participation in FSP will contribute toward their professional development and plans for tenure or promotion
  • Evidence of seeking support from their unit (e.g., department and/or school or college).
