The Center for CETR Faculty Writing Retreat

CETR Faculty Writing Retreat Schedule (2017)

Note: We will update this schedule as we get closer to the 2018 dates.


Steal away for two days of dedicated writing time.  This retreat is intended for faculty who want to move along a writing project about their community-engaged scholarship, or to brainstorm potential written projects about their community-engaged teaching or research. This is a two day, deep-dive version our year-long writing group.  All scheduled activities are “come if you wish.” We invite you to carve out an experience that is unique to your writing projects.  

* Please come with one community-engaged writing project you are working on.
