Step 3: Interested in the intensive semester-long Faculty Success Program this spring or summer?
The 12-week faculty success program is for tenure-track and tenured faculty who are looking to adopt an individually tailored combination of empirically-tested methods to enhance research productivity through intense accountability, coaching, and peer support, in a way that honors work-life balance and individual goals. There are two upcoming sessions—Spring: Jan 21-April 14, 2019 (internal CC deadline Nov. 10, 2018), and one in the summer (dates TBD). Tuition of the Faculty Success Program is $3,950 and the Dean of the Faculty will provide full tuition to a few faculty members each semester.
