Be on the lookout for your official "Welcome" to the NCFDD

Early next week (i.e., Monday, February 10), you should be on the lookout for a "welcome" e-mail from the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD). The message, from sender "," will bear the subject "Welcome to the NationalCenter for Faculty Development and Diversity." It will contain information about how you can establish an individual user account for the NCFDD'swebsite,; you'll need your own individual account to access the website's full range of resources.

We are excited about this new partnership and hope that faculty at all career stages take full advantage of the resources through the NCFDD.
