A Note From Kerry Ann


NCFDD Campus Workshop Facilitator Joy Gaston Gayles at the
RochesterInstitute of Technology

I have to admit I’m feeling particularly energized heading into April!

The reason why is pretty simple. It's because we keep growing at such a fast pace! Since January, we've added seven new Institutional Members and more than 2,700 new faculty, post-docs, and graduate students into our community. And of course, as we continue to grow, we continue to look for new ways to support our members and help them grow and become highly productive.

Because we’re focused on productivity heading into the summer, we’ve got some exciting opportunities for you! First and foremost, the registration for our summer bootcamp (the Faculty Success Program) has officially opened. Last session we filled up before the end of registration, so don’t wait to register (we're already 62% full). 

We also have a great line-up of professional development training this month! Professor Mindi Thompson (University of Wisconsin-Madison) will be teaching our core curriculum webinar on Mastering Academic Time Management, and Professors Cynthia Ganote (Saint Mary's College), Floyd Cheung (Smith College), and Tasha Souza (Boise State University) will be offering the last installment of our series on Campus Incivility with a webinar on Micro-Aggressions, Micro-Resistance, and Ally Development in the Academy.

Additionally, this month we're introducing you to one of our Certified Workshop Facilitators (Professor Joy Gayles, North Carolina State University) who is available to visit your campus. And finally, our feature article asks one simple question: Are You Ready For a 14-Day Writing Challenge? That’s right, it’s time to join our two week, pop-up community for developing a daily writing habit. It’s a great way to experiment with best practices in a supportive community (see our feature article below). I hope this month's resources will help you to amp up your productivity, get focused, and move towards the summer with a focus on your writing
