Faculty Success Program (NCFDD)Kendall Center

The NCFDD Faculty Success Program is a 12-week, online-based program where participants learn strategies to:

  • increase their research productivity,
  • gain control of their time, and
  • live a full and healthy life beyond campus. 

Cost & Matching Funds

The Kendall Center has committed $2,500 per person in funding assistance for up to 4 recipients per year for full-time, tenure-line faculty to participate in this program. Faculty will be required to pay for the difference of the remaining tuition cost, such as with matching funds from the faculty member’s department, program, their start-up funds, or other sources.
