About the Faculty Success Program
The National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD) is an independent professional development, training, and mentoring community of graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and faculty members. The highly acclaimed Faculty Success Program is an intensive virtual boot camp offered through NCFDD that combines empirically tested methods, coaching, peer discussions, and accountability tools to help academics thrive in their careers and achieve a healthy work-life balance. A session of the FSP runs in the spring, summer, and fall.

• Set achievable professional and personal goals and a realistic plan to meet them
• Establish a consistent and sustainable daily writing routine

• Master best practices in academic time management
• Excel at collaborating effectively with colleagues and administrators
• Enjoy a full life beyond campus

Most NCFDD online tools and resources are open to all faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars from member institutions like UNH.
