Writing Retreat

Cosponsored by:


Monday,  April 27, 2015

1:00 to 4:00 p.m., MRH (SOLES) 135

Back by popular demand—The Center for Educational Excellence, at the request of Lauren Benz (Chemistry & Biochemistry), has organized a private space to foster the writing productivity for ALL interested faculty.  The aim is to assign a block of time that will help faculty incorporate writing into their schedules. The format for these sessions is for faculty to work quietly on their own items, and with plenty of coffee and snacks provided. RSVP Here

Please note: you may drop in and out as your time allows.
