Apply Now for Sponsorship for the Summer Faculty Success Program
The Office of Academic Affairs, through the division of Faculty Affairs, is pleased to co-sponsor a limited number of faculty members for several upcoming installments of the Faculty Success Program through the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity. The Faculty Success Program (FSP) is a 12-week online program designed to teach tenure-track and tenured faculty the skills to increase research and writing productivity while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
The next installment of the FSP will be summer 2021 (May 16 through Aug. 7, 2021). Future installments will be in Fall 2021 (Aug. 29 through Nov. 20, 2021) and Spring 2022 (Jan. 16 through April 9, 2022). Currently, the cost per participant is $4,250.
Applications for participation in the summer 2021 Faculty Success Program must be received by noon Thursday, March 18, 2021. Submissions for all other session dates received after March 18 will be held for future program offerings. To be considered, faculty members must have activated their Syracuse University-affiliated account with the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, made possible through the Syracuse University Institutional Membership.
Typically, the cost of participation is shared equally among three entities: the faculty member (through research funds, startup funds or other professional development funds); their department, school, or college; and by a grant through Faculty Affairs. Other proposed funding arrangements can be considered but are not guaranteed.
Interested faculty members must complete a short survey indicating their interest in participating, including the specific reasons why participation in a specific 12-week installment is desirable, if applicable. Responses are limited to 2000 characters (approximately 350 words).
Additionally, faculty members who wish to participate in summer 2021 (only) must:
- Indicate the proposed funding arrangement for their participation (i.e. describe the available cost-share arrangement).
- Provide the name of the contact in the department, school, and/or college who will verify that sponsorship for summer 2021 is available. This is likely a department chair, associate dean, and/or dean.
- Provide the name(s) of the contact(s) in the department, school, and/or college who will facilitate payment. This is likely a budget or operations manager.
Faculty members who request funding for the summer 2021 program, but are not selected for participation, will be maintained on a waitlist for future program opportunities. However, funding will be confirmed prior to participation in future instances of the program if selected for a later date.
Please contact Marie Garland, Assistant Provost for Faculty Affairs, with questions.
