Making the Ask: Institutional Membership

How to Get Your institution to invest in an institutional membership

We are hearing from more and more faculty, alumni, and administrators who want to bring an NCFDD Institutional Membership to their college or university but are struggling to identify strategies for starting the process. After supporting and tracking the results of faculty who have successfully advocated for an Institutional Membership, we've developed a clear, concise formula for making a successful "ask" for membership. In this 60-minute training, we share how to make Institutional Membership an irresistible offer, how to position the annual membership as a win-win situation for your college or university, and how to secure a commitment to provide all faculty with the skills, strategies, and tools they need to thrive in the Academy.


If you'd like to advocate for an Institutional Membership for your college or university, or if you're simply interested in learning how others have made the "ask" at their institution, then this workshop is for you!
