Re: National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity


I am pleased to inform you or remind you that the Executive Vice Chancellor’s Office continues to sponsor an institutional membership for UC Santa Barbara with the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD). NCFDD is an independent professional development, training, and mentoring community for faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students, dedicated to supporting academics in making successful transitions throughout their careers. Our membership provides a series of mentoring services, including workshops focused on research and writing strategies, networking opportunities, and other forms of professional support and faculty development.

To review the available benefits offered by NCFDD and to activate your sponsored membership, please log on to and follow the instructions listed in the attached flyer.

We encourage you to take advantage of the resources available for our academic community. Thank you.
