"The NCFDD has been central to my success as a junior scholar, teaching me strategies for approaching long-term writing and research projects and navigating all the challenges of building a research program and managing competing pressures on my time as a new faculty member.  I highly recommend their faculty bootcamp program that helps to overcome every kind of writing and research roadblocks, increase productivity, cultivate mentoring and manage other professional relationships, lower stress, and experience better work-life balance.

"The NCFDD Faculty Success Program allowed me to be part of an open, supportive community. Since groups are formed from individuals at different universities, it felt easy to express fears and doubts, and learn that everyone feels these – but that there are ways to reframe your perspective and your working habits. I use the tools I learned in this program to make realistic semester plans, weekly plans, and daily plans that help me keep my priorities straight as junior tenure-track faculty. "
