Given the many faculty and staff colleagues focused on containing the surge in COVID cases among students, Provost Kersh’s annual address to campus has been postponed to Wednesday, Feb. 24, from 4 to 5 p.m. We look forward to seeing you then; a Zoom link will be circulated in advance.

The National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) is an independent professional development, training and mentoring community dedicated to supporting academics in making successful transitions throughout their careers.
To learn more about the value of the organization’s offerings and online resources, the Office of the Provost, in conjunction with the Professional Development Center, sponsored NCFDD memberships for a cohort of 25 faculty members for the 2019-2020 academic year. Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from cohort members about their experience, NCFDD resources have been made available for the entire campus through an institutional membership.
Faculty and staff are invited to learn more about the NCFDD and access institutional member benefits by visiting the NCFDD website and logging in using their wfu.edu or wakehealth.edu email address to establish an account.
The Office of the Provost will host a joint faculty-staff update on Wednesday, Dec. 16, from 4 to 5 p.m. with a focus on public health and safety. A link to join the virtual meeting was emailed to faculty and staff on Tuesday, Dec. 15.
