Welcome to Advance Faculty Affairs and Diversity Office

UNC Charlotte is an Institutional member of National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD). The NCFDD is a nationally-recognized, independent organization that provides online career development and mentoring resources for faculty, post-docs, and graduate students. Faculty have access through the University’s institutional membership to items such as the NCFDD’s Weekly Monday Motivator, monthly core curriculum webinars, monthly guest expert webinars, access to multi-week courses, access to dissertation success curriculum for graduate students, a private discussion forum for peer-mentoring, problem-solving, and moderated writing challenges, monthly accountability buddy matches, access to 14-Day writing challenges, and access to the Member Library that includes past webinar materials, referrals, and readings.
To claim access to the institutional membership, you will need to activate your personal membership account. Visit the NCFDD membership page and select UNC Charlotte from the list of member institutions (note we are under UNC Asheville and Tulane not with other schools in the system). If you have any technical questions, contact NCFDD or ADVANCE FADO.
SCHOLARSHIP AND SAFETY
UNC Charlotte encourages and promotes faculty participation in public scholarship and publishing as a hallmark of academic freedom and exploration. Such participation raises the profile of the faculty member, their scholarship and the University. Unfortunately, faculty who engage in public scholarship may experience backlash, including heightened public scrutiny and troubling, or sometimes threatening, responses from individuals who hold opposing views. The Office of Legal Affairs (OLA) can offer faculty support and advice in response to legal matters related to their scholarly publications and participation in public scholarship. Please click HERE for information about the perimeters of this support and representation and how OLA can help direct you to other resources that may be needed.

Recently-Tenured Associate Professor Orientation
Every year, our office convenes a panel consisting of the Deans of all the Colleges to provide important insight to recently-tenured faculty as they embark on this next step in their academic careers.
The orientation is scheduled for:
Tuesday, January 16th 2024 from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m.
Location: Cone 111
The overarching goal of the Recently-Tenured Associate Faculty Orientation is to provide strategies and highlight expectations that will allow you to be successful as an associate professor, and chart a path to successful promotion to full professor.
The importance of this orientation is underscored by the willingness of each Dean to take time out of their busy schedules to sit on the panel, so we strongly recommend that you take the time to attend.
Coffee/tea and cookies will be provided!!
We invite faculty who received tenure in the past two years, so if you attended the orientation last year, you do not need to attend this year.
To Register for the rescheduled orientation please go to:
