The Faculty Success Program is NCFDD’s most popular program. It is a 12-week online program that helps non-tenure-track, tenure-track and tenured faculty develop the skills necessary to increase research and writing productivity while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. The cost is $4,550 per faculty member. As part of a collaboration between the Provost Office and the Division of Inclusion, Diversity & Equity to support faculty success, MU offers at least 4 full scholarships to this program per year. Please see information about how to apply for a scholarship below.

Due to high interest, we have supported 12 faculty members to participate in the NCFDD program from summer 2022 to spring 2023 semesters. Thus, we will not be accepting applications in the spring 2023 semester for the summer 2023 faculty success program. Please check back because we will provide information on how to apply for the program during the 2023-2024 academic year.
