The University at Buffalo is pleased to announce it has joined the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD).

UB's institutional membership offers an array of resources to all faculty, postdocs, and graduate students, including:
Below are programs offered to NCFDD members at an additional cost:
NCFDD’s 12-week Faculty Success Program (FSP) is an intensive virtual bootcamp where academics work directly with a coach and small peer group to implement the skills and strategies taught in our core curriculum. The program is for tenure-track and tenured faculty who are looking for the perfect combination of intense accountability, coaching, and peer support to propel their research productivity and work-life balance to new levels.
The FSP includes:
The program is offered three times a year: Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters.
For colleges, universities, foundations, and professional organizations looking to support the success of their tenured and tenure-track faculty, postdocs, and advanced graduate students, NCFDD provides both on-campus and virtual trainings on a wide-range of topics. Each Campus Workshop is designed to address core dilemmas in the Academy by teaching concrete and empirically-tested strategies for success. For more information, visit NCFDD's Campus Workshops webpage.
NCFDD’s Post Tenure Pathfinders Program is a 12-week virtual program that provides a space for recently tenured faculty to pause, engage in a discovery process about what’s possible in their next chapter, and build the support network necessary to move powerfully in that new direction. The program is specifically for alumni of our Faculty Success Program who are recently tenured and want to find their post-tenure pathway, or for mid-career faculty members who want to plan their next chapter.
