Mid-Career Faculty Writing Program

The Mid-Career Faculty Writing Program, sponsored by the Office of the Provost is designed to assist tenured Associate Professors with time and space to write. This year’s program will take place during spring semester, 2017.

The program offers two components: (1) facilitated writing work groups and (2) writing accountability groups. The facilitated work groups allow for faculty to come together during a mutually agreed-upon period of time to write, share their work, and receive feedback from a mentor-facilitator. The writing accountability groups provide a means for faculty to report on their progress toward their writing goals, and to problem-solve about obstacles to writing. Exact details in terms of frequency and times of the group meetings, for both components, will be mutually decided upon and determined based on the number of participating mentees and available mentors. It is expected that the work groups and the writing accountability groups will meet on a regular basis (at least once per month). Mentees will be matched with mentor-facilitators (emeriti faculty according to a list of goals and intentions for participating.
