We are pleased to announce that the University of Utah has now obtained an Institutional Membership for the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD). The NCFDD is a nationally-recognized, independent organization that provides online career development and mentoring resources for faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral students. Because the University of Utah is now an institutional member, our graduate students, post-doctoral students, and faculty now have access to a large variety of programs, services and resources at no cost (the normal cost for individual memberships would be $240/year for graduate and post-doctoral scholars, and $480/year for faculty).
To register for your University of Utah NCFDD membership, please complete the following steps:
- Visit facultydiversity.org/Utah
- Under "Registration Information," enter your University of Utah email address as a username. Also enter your first name , last name, validation code (provided by the website), and click continue.
- Enter the required registration information and click "submit."
- Members will receive a welcome email within 1-2 business days confirming that the account is approved and active.
If you have any questions about the membership, please contact: Nadia Granados in the College of Education at email@example.com.
“I used my own research money to become an individual member, mostly in response to criticism of my scholarly record. I had been working very hard but wanted to figure out how to work more effectively. Within the first few weeks of being a member, I participated in the two week writing bootcamp, which helped me establish a daily writing routine. It has helped me more than I could imagine. It has forced me to reflect on why some of my work practices are not as efficient as they could be. It also added a layer of external accountability that has helped me push forward with research. Having a support network that is no way linked to the promotion and tenure process, or even within the same academic field makes the feedback more open, non-judgmental, and also different from what a colleague may tell me. The program has helped me to create a realistic plan, and so far I am actually sticking to it. This program will benefit both the research output and the mental health of faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students.“
