NCFDD Faculty Success Program Sponsorship

The Office of the Provost is pleased to be able to sponsor two full-time faculty members to participate in the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity’s (NCFDD) Faculty Success Program during Spring 2023. This 12-week intensive mentoring experience is offered online and is designed to help faculty members increase scholarly productivity, manage time effectively, and maximize work-life balance. For additional information about the program you can visit the faculty diversity webpage .

Participants in the Faculty Success Program are expected to: be self-directed and open to feedback; participate in weekly online trainings and small group support and accountability calls; and complete weekly homework tasks guided by their coach, among other activities.

Following completion of the program, sponsored faculty will submit a brief report to the CELT Office that reflects on the overall effectiveness of the program, the extent to which their goals were met, suggestions for ways the program could be improved, and descriptions of lessons or effective practices that should be considered at Brockport. Alumni of the program also may be asked to share their experience with their peers and/or serve on a future sponsorship selection committee.

The Faculty Success Program was a transformative experience as it gifted me with the tools necessary for a productive and fulfilling scholarly career that is sustainable. With small group support and coaching, the Faculty Success Program is invaluable and was beyond any expectation I might have had. As an alumni of the program, I have continued access to the platform, trainings, large group Q & As, and my small group for continued positive after effects.
