The VCU Office of the Provost is pleased to offer 6 grants to fund faculty participation in the Faculty Success Program during the spring 2020 semester.
The goal of the Faculty Success Program, developed by the NCFDD (The National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity), of which VCU is an Institutional Member, is to enrich both the professional and personal lives of faculty by helping them increase their research productivity and time management skills. The Faculty Success Program is an intensive 12-week virtual boot camp offered through NCFDD that combines empirically-tested methods, coaching, peer discussions, and accountability tools to help academics thrive in their careers and achieve a work-life balance. The spring Faculty Success Program runs January 19 - April 11, 2020.
The Faculty Success Program grant is limited to tenure-track faculty who are VCU institutional members of NCFDD. (If you are not already a member, register under VCU’s institutional membership at https://www.facultydiversity.org/join). Applications from faculty members at the assistant professor level who are trying to increase their scholarly profile for tenure and promotion are especially encouraged.
The application deadline is October 18, 2019 at 5 p.m.
