National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity

A Note from The NCFDD Team

This is a time of highly unusual circumstance as individuals and institutions are confronting the COVID-19 crisis. We understand that necessary safety measures mean that your routine has changed dramatically and many faculty members are being asked to develop new ways of teaching very quickly. To support our members during this time we have curated a list of support resources specifically in response to the current climate, you can access those here.  As we are also thinking ahead to the return to campuses and rhythm of a typical semester, we also want to continue to share our planned resources with you to give you tools to consider and reflect on. As always, the resources at NCFDD are here to help you set goals, measure productivity, and practice self-care during these extraordinary circumstances.

If you're feeling overwhelmed, check out this video from NCFDD Founder Kerry Ann Rockquemore. It's all about checking in with yourself, identifying your needs, and figuring out what could be good at this difficult time.
