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.

EVENTS

BEST PRACTICES FOR INCLUSIVE FACULTY RECRUITMENT WORKSHOPS:

Faculty Forum

The ADVANCE Faculty Affairs and Diversity Office invites you to attend the 2024 Faculty Forum, which is scheduled for 

Monday, March 18, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. Location TBD.

The goal of the forum is to provide transparency and clarity around policies and practices for promotion to full professor. 

It is clear that an understanding of policies and practices for promotion to full is very important, not only for Associate Professors, but also for Unit and College Review Committee Members, and Full Professors as they vote for promotion based on these policies and practices. 

With this in mind, we strongly encourage all Associate Professors, Full Professors, and all Members of D/URC and CRCs to attend.
