National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD)

Princeton University has an institutional membership with the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NFCDD) which makes virtual resources available to anyone with a Princeton email account.  As an institutional member, faculty members and academic professionals from all ranks can enroll in a free sub-account membership to get access to the center’s online resources which include workshops, webinars, and seminars on topics related to faculty life, such as increasing writing productivity, prioritizing and managing time, cultivating mentors, securing external funding, and maintaining work-life balance.  

Opportunities to participate in new classes or workshops occur throughout the year and past sessions are archived on the site.  NCFDD offers a virtual writing “bootcamps” three times a year.  The 15-week Faculty Success Program is intended for tenured or tenure-track faculty members and the12-week Dissertation Success Program is intended for doctoral students  .  Participants work with coaches and a small peer group to develop their writing skills.  Princeton University has funded a limited number of fellowships for faculty members and graduate students to participate in these programs.  For more information, please contact Assistant Dean Kate Baxter (faculty) or Assistant Dean Julie Yun (graduate students).
