About Faculty Success Program

Faculty Success Program at UCI

As part of our institutional membership in the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, campus faculty and postdoctoral fellows may participate in the Faculty Success Program at a discounted tuition rate.

The Faculty Success Program provides participants with a supportive community committed to accelerating productivity and advancing career goals. UC faculty have benefitted from the Faculty Success Program through:

  • Setting achievable personal and professional goals
  • Establishing a consistent, healthy, and sustainable daily writing routine
  • Developing a publication profile that exceeds the institution's promotion criteria
  • Mastering best-practices in academic time management
  • Identifying areas of resistance and developing strategies to move through them
  • Nourishing physical and emotional health
  • Providing a supportive community to process challenges and celebrate successes
