Welcome to Advance Faculty Affairs and Diversity Office
WE ENCOURAGE OUR CAMPUS COMMUNITY TO STAY CONNECTED, SO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT OUR OFFICE VIA PHONE 704-687-5112 OR VIA EMAIL AT ADVANCEUNCC@UNCC.EDU.
We are very excited to announce that the University has joined the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) as an Institutional Member. The NCFDD is a nationally-recognized, independent organization that provides online career development and mentoring resources for faculty, post-docs, and graduate students. Faculty will 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. To do this, visit the NCFDD membership page and select UNC Charlotte (note we are under UNC Asheville and Tulane not with other schools in the system) from the list of member institutions. If you have any technical questions, contact NCFDD or contact 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.
