Grads and postdocs, are you aware that UCSB has an institutional membership with the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD)? NCFDD is an independent professional development, training, and mentoring community for faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students, and academic staff, dedicated to supporting academics in making successful transitions throughout their careers.

Their campus membership provides a series of mentoring services, including workshops focused on research and writing strategies, networking opportunities, and other forms of professional support and faculty development resources. Also included are a newsletter, webinars, courses, discussion groups, writing groups, and a member library of past webinar materials, referrals, and readings.

The steps to activate your sponsored membership can be found on the NCFDD page on the EVC website. We encourage you to take advantage of these resources!
