U of U obtains an Institutional Membership for the National Center for Faculty Development
& Diversity (NCFDD)
sponsored by the College of Education
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
“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.“
