Scholarly Writing Institute held June 8-10

The Office of University Research (OUR) and the Faculty Center for Professional Development will hold a summer session for faculty called The ScholarlyWriting Institute (SWI). The session will take place Wednesday-Friday, June 8-10, in the Steve and Nini Horn Center Conference Room.

The previous Scholarly Writing Institutes held on campus in 2004 and early 2005 were successful, addressing faculty expressed need for assistance in overcoming obstacles in beginning or completing scholarly writing projects required to reach immediate- and long-term scholarly milestones. Those who participated in previous Institutes appreciated the time to write, reflect and consult with colleagues about writing issues. The SWI provides a two-and-one-half day intensive workshop to assist faculty in completing a substantial amount of writing on a specific scholarly writing project.

The program will provide participants 12 hours of dedicated writing time and resource consultants who are recognized for their expertise in specific areas such as editing, illustration, and statistical analyses. Consultants will be included in the institute depending on the types of challenges individual faculty face.
