About National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD)

The Office of Academic Affairs is proud to announce that Queensborough Community College is now a member in the National Center for Faculty Diversity and Development (NCFDD), the first Community College to join NCFDD. Membership provides additional support to our faculty who are already committed to scholarship and excellence in teaching and service. We hope that these resources will support the goals and needs of our faculty.

This membership is made possible by a CUNY OAA mini-grant and with the support of our president, Dr. Christine Mangino, who matched the funds. We hope that this membership will be especially supportive to mid-career faculty seeking promotion.

The NCFDD is an independent faculty development center dedicated to supporting academics in making successful transitions throughout their careers. By becoming an Institutional Member, all faculty at Queensborough will have access to the following member resources at no additional cost:

  • Weekly Monday Motivator
  • Monthly Core Curriculum Webinars
  • Monthly Guest Expert Webinars
  • Access to Multi-Week Courses
  • Access to Dissertation Success Curriculum for graduate students
  • Private Discussion Forum for peer-mentoring, problem-solving, & moderated writing challenges
  • Monthly accountability buddy matches
  • Access to 14-Day Writing Challenges
  • Access to the Member Library that includes past webinar materials, referrals, and readings
