New Paltz faculty can now access professional development and resources through the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity

SUNY New Paltz has obtained an Institutional Membership to the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD), a move that extends new professional development, training and mentoring resource to all our faculty.

The NCFDD is an independent professional development, training, and mentoring community of faculty, post-doctorates and graduate students from more than 450 colleges and universities.

Previously available only to our Promoting Recruitment, Opportunity, Diversity, Inclusion and Growth (PRODiG) faculty through a SUNY system membership, the College is pleased to be able to use SUNY faculty development funding to support a campus membership that will now benefit all of our faculty.

In addition to the resources available to you as an Institutional Member, the Center also offers professional development training and intensive mentoring programs.
