On Friday, April 22, the Office of Research Services will offer its final lunch-and-learn of the academic year, "National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity's Faculty Success Program." In this workshop, panelists will discuss the Faculty Success Program, which helps tenure-track and tenured faculty with the skills necessary to increase research and writing productivity while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

Stephani Mason, an assistant professor in the Driehaus College of Business and one of the panelists for the lunch-and-learn, recalls a point when she had "a lot of papers in revise-and-resubmit status, plus other papers in my pipeline. One of my senior co-authors recommended the Faculty Success Program to me. The program not only had curated a novel curriculum of advances and knowledge in productivity and professional development, but also it helped me adopt best practices and habits into my daily life."

In Friday's program, past participants will share their experiences, including ways to fund participation, and discuss other resources provided by the NCFDD. Along with Mason, the session's panelists include:

  • Cindy Pickett, associate provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and associate professor in the College of Science and Health; and
  • Julie Artis, faculty director of Course Scheduling Analytics and professor in the Department of Sociology.
