"The NCFDD Will Be A Tremendous Direct Asset”

"We are very pleased to be joining the NCFDD and to be working with them to provide mentoring, networking and career development support for our faculty members. The NCFDD will be a tremendous direct asset and will link our faculty into a quickly growing national community of scholars who provide mutual support and move us all toward excellence in higher education.”

Daniel Myers, PhD

"I Am Very Pleased That The NCFDD Is Taking The Lead To Offer A Unique Menu Of Professional Development Opportunities”

"I am very pleased that the NCFDD is taking the lead to offer a unique menu of professional development opportunities for underrepresented scholars on making a successful transition from graduate student to faculty member. So often, efforts aimed at building faculty diversity focus solely on recruitment. But, as you know, recruitment is only half the challenge – the other is to keep promising underrepresented faculty members at our institutions. To this end, the OSU College of Arts and Sciences is delighted to partner with NCFDD as part of our strategic retention efforts."

Assistant Dean for Strategic Recruitment & Diversity

"I'm Already Receiving Positive Emails, With Colleagues Telling Me What They're Now Doing Differently”

"Thanks so much for your workshop on Writing, Procrastination, and Resistance. Our faculty were extremely appreciative of both the content of the session and your fantastic delivery—putting people at ease and sharing personal anecdotes that helped them see how they CAN change their writing habits and achieve more… I’m already receiving positive emails, with colleagues telling me what they’re now doing differently and how the experience of the workshop has galvanized them. Step by step, all these ideas are helping to change the scholarship culture into something more collegial and supportive.”

"The NCFDD Is A Breath Of Much-Needed Fresh Air In The Academy”
"The University of Iowa has had a longstanding relationship with Kerry Ann Rockquemore, so it was a natural extension to sign up for an NCFDD Institutional Membership. Our faculty at all career stages, especially faculty of color and other underrepresented faculty members, have found the resources beneficial – inspirational, pragmatic, and normalizing of the challenges they face… Faculty evaluations of the program report their appreciation that the institution is "investing in our future and success.” The NCFDD is a breath of much-needed fresh air in the academy.”

Diane Finnerty, MS
Director of Faculty HR and Development, Office of the Provost
The University of Iowa


"Our Participation In The NCFDD Institutional Membership Is Helping Hundreds Of Our Faculty And Graduate Students Learn To Work Effectively Without Losing Their Minds Or Their Health”

"The traditional models of mentoring are simply not adequate to help faculty manage the competing and multiple demands that come from teaching, scholarship, and professional service, much less the time to hold one's personal life together effectively. The messaging and supportive community that the NCFDD provides has given many of our faculty new ways to organize their work so that they can both be productive and have time for families and friends. What people learn from the Center is prioritizing time, learning when to say no, and writing effectively without work consuming you. Our participation in the NCFDD Institutional Membership is helping hundreds of our faculty and graduate students learn to work effectively without losing their minds or their health… We thank Kerry Ann Rockquemore and her team for all of the support they are giving to our faculty.”
