The Center provides skills and strategies intended to help RIT faculty, post docs and graduate students thrive in academic life. The NCFDD offers a wide variety of resources, from tools to increase your research productivity, to writing, and time management.

Here are some of the professional development and training opportunities that the NCFDD offers:

  • Mentoring
  • Webinars
  • Multi-Week Courses
  • Full library of all previous webinars and multi-week courses
  • 14-Day Writing Challenges
  • Private Discussion Forums with moderated monthly writing challenges
  • Dissertation Success Curriculum and Discussion Forum for advanced graduate students

Since RIT is an institutional member of the NCFDD, the service is free for RIT faculty, post docs and graduate students.
