A Note from the NCFDD Team


Our summer of productivity is well underway at NCFDD! We just kicked off our largest session of our Faculty Bootcamp (1,197 boot campers and alumni) and we're getting ready to launch our brand new mentoring platform to replace the old This is exciting for us because it means we are working directly to achieve our mission: to help as many faculty, graduate students, and post-docs as possible to truly THRIVE in the Academy.



We define THRIVING as the combination of explosive research productivity and having a full and healthy life beyond campus. Because we've helped many academics move from surviving to thriving, we are delighted to see our bootcamps growing, membership increasing, campus workshops expanding, and our ability to deliver our resources in the most easily-accessible way ever.

This month, we want to ask you: 1) Are you thriving in your academic career and life? and 2) Do you have the tools you need to work and live at your highest potential? If you're looking for more support or ways to stretch and grow, we have plenty of opportunities for you to do so this month. We can help you to overcome writing procrastination with our core curriculum webinar, Moving from Resistance to Writing, facilitated by Professor Anthony Ocampo. We're also offering an encore presentation of our popular multi-week course, Teaching In No Time: How to Prepare for a Stress-Free Semester.

Our feature article is all about the biggest blocks to faculty mentoring and how we're working to address them on our new online platform. We've learned a lot about what keeps faculty members from getting the mentoring they want and need over the last 7 years. And through lots of experimentation, we've also learned a lot about what works. Click below to learn more.

We are excited about all of the webinars, courses, and community we have to support you this summer! We hope these resources contribute to YOUR continued stretching, growing and evolving!
