In a dynamic and ever-evolving higher education landscape, faculty navigate competing demands on their time, ambiguous expectations, uneven support, and having to learn on the job. Building on 20 years of engagement with faculty, we have developed a comprehensive set of resources designed to help faculty of all types succeed in today’s academy. Knowing that each career stage presents unique challenges, our resources are designed to support faculty holistically as they begin and advance in their academic careers.
- For early and mid-career faculty, our training focuses on the core functions of teaching, research and scholarship, and career advancement in addition to leadership development, general productivity, and well-being.
- Faculty success begins at the top, so we also support faculty affairs leaders in creating environments where faculty can thrive. Our resources focus on developing faculty support infrastructure, policies and procedures, and tools to navigate challenging personnel and climate issues. We also offer space for faculty affairs professionals to network and envision professional development in their careers.
Utilizing a variety of program modalities, our programs range from asynchronous, micro resources that busy faculty members can consume on their own time to longer-form synchronous instruction that is ideal for deep dives or learning as a cohort.

Access: At the start of the partnership, your Account Manager will work with you to plan launching membership resources to all assigned users. They will collaborate with you on a communication plan, conduct virtual open houses with your users, and ensure those with membership access have the resources they need to succeed.
Adoption: Throughout the course of your membership, your Account Manager will monitor usage and help identify professional development opportunities that will engage your team.
