Faculty Success

Faculty Success

Resources to help faculty of all types succeed with research and scholarship, maintain productivity and well-being, and advance their careers as individuals and contributors to the institution.

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.
  • Leadership manifests in multiple ways in the academy. Our faculty leadership resources help faculty develop the foundational skills they need to lead in the academy from administrative roles and functions to leading as a researcher, scholar, and practitioner in one’s field and community.                                                                                               
  • Our resources for faculty affairs leaders focus on developing faculty support infrastructure, policies and procedures, and tools to navigate challenging personnel and climate issues so faculty can thrive in their roles. 

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.
