The Center for CETR Faculty Writing Retreat

CETR Faculty Writing Retreat Schedule from Summer 2017:

Please return for updated information.


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.
