UNM Division for Equity and Inclusion encourages faculty to activate institutional membership

The Division for Equity and Inclusion sponsors the University of New Mexico’s institutional membership in the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD) – as part of the ongoing mission of the UNM to rely on its educational resources.

The NCFDD is an independent community of professional development, training and mentorship of faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students from over 450 colleges and universities with programs and services designed to help researchers increase research productivity and work-life balance. The NCFDD offers intensive professional development training and mentoring programs, including the following popular resources.

  • the WriteNow platform: NCFDD’s bespoke platform is a one-stop destination that allows academics to track their writing time, manage their daily and weekly goals, connect with members of small groups, and more.
  • NCFDD Virtual workshops: These live online sessions allow participants to actively engage with NCFDD content, connect with other academics, and delve into great topics such as mentoring, time management, ‘a publishing pipeline, strategic planning, and more!
  • NCFDD Library: Available 24/7, the NCFDD Library contains a treasure trove of recorded webinars and multi-week courses that aim to support academic success with a wide range of topics that can be watched at your convenience.

To access NCFDD resources and register for upcoming webinars, faculty must first activate their NCFDD membership and select University of New Mexico from the list of members.

NCFDD members can participate in the Faculty Success Program (FSP). The NCFDD-FSP is an intensive 12-week online program where participants learn strategies to increase their research productivity, better control their time, and live full and healthy lives beyond campus.

DCI provides financial assistance to faculty on a first come, first served basis for half the cost of the program of $ 2,125. Professors whose primary appointment is in main or health science campuses are eligible for financial aid and are encouraged to seek additional support from their departments.
