The Center for CETR Faculty Writing Retreat

CETR Faculty Writing Retreat Schedule 2018


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.  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.  

* We have reserved a private meeting space at Alphabet City; however, they are open to the public daily starting at 11:00am.
