Since its inception, OFD has gathered comprehensive data, analyzed findings, and produced reports and tools on key issues affecting faculty career satisfaction and advancement. Seeking faculty input on their experience and needs to thrive in academe is instrumental in OFD’s ability to develop responsive programming addressing career priorities, wellbeing, and potential obstacles.
