The National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity invited three Emory experts to develop this course, which provides an overview of the best advice and approaches for putting together your dossier, regardless of your field or institution: how to tell the story of your research, show the impact of your work, make a case for your future work, write for the multiple readers of your statement, address possible perceived weaknesses, and more.

Through the Office of the Provost, Emory is an institutional member of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD). The NCFDD offers an online core curriculum consisting of webinars from their own and other faculty experts on topics such as planning each semester, mastering academic time management, cultivating mentors, and learning to engage in conflict for transformation. Member benefits include

  • Core Curriculum webinars
  • Guest expert webinars
  • Multi-week courses
  • 14-Day Writing Challenge program
  • Dissertation Success Curriculum program
  • Private discussion forum for peer-mentoring, problem-solving, and moderated writing challenges

Founded in 2010, the NFCDD aims to help faculty and future faculty thrive in the academy. The NCFDD approaches faculty success holistically, offering training and guidance on how to achieve tenure, how to write and publish work, and how to manage stress and time.

Access to the NCFDD services is available to all faculty, postdocs, and graduate students at Emory. To activate your membership, go to the faculty diversity website, search for Emory University, and sign in using your emory.edu email.
