Increase Faculty Diversity

Offer workshops by National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity

An institutional member of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD), Dartmouth has offered workshops and funded faculty participation in boot camps offered by NCFDD. The College will continue to expand the reach of this programming. 


A supportive and inclusive faculty is comprised of individuals who feel supported and have access to resources to help them support colleauges whose perspectives and challenges may differ from their own.  

To help cultivate this supportive environment for current and future faculty, Dartmouth has joined the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD) - an independent, professional development, training and mentoring community dedicated to supporting academics in making successful transitions throughout their careers. Learn more at NCFDD's website. 


As of September 1, 2016, a total of 620 teaching faculty, non-teaching staff, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows have joined the NCFDD under Dartmouth's registration.  Membership is free under Dartmouth's institutional affiliation. 

In 2015-16 the Office of the Provost offered three NCFDD workshops on campus: "Tenure and Time Management"; "Mid-Career Productivity"; and "Re-Thinking Mentoring: Building Communities of Inclusion, Support and Accountability". Each of these sessions was offered twice, once during the December interim and once during spring term. 

Additionally, NCFDD offers numerous on-line programs and virtual workshops that members may access on their own. These have been promoted through deans, department and program chairs, and to targeted faculty, such as senior faculty in mentoring programs. 

Also during 2015-16  the provost sponsored, or co-cosponsored (with the deans) three faculty member's participation in NCFDD's faculty success boot camp, and supported one person in their dissertation writing program. Individual deans used their own professional development resources to support faculty participation in the faculty success program. 




Membership in NCFDD through Dartmouth's institutional affiliation continues to grow. In addition to NCFDD's online resources, periodic campus workshops and intensive 'boot camp' for selected faculty, Dartmouth offers a variety professional development opportunities for faculty through the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL). These include one-on-one consultations, workshops and classroom visits. A full listing of these opportunities can be found on the services page of the DCAL website.
