CANCELED - Faculty Writing Studios

Tue, 24 Mar 2020 12:30 PM - Fri, 27 Mar 2020 9:35 AM

Faculty Writing Studios are canceled for the week of March 23-27.

Many JMU faculty are not only teachers, they are scholars too.  Many have scholarship/research as core to their professional responsibilities, yet struggle to find the time and space to work on their scholarship during the academic year. The demands of teaching and service are intense and scholarship gets placed on the backburner. Need the space and time to advance or complete that research and/or writing project? Faculty Writing Studio is an opportunity for faculty members who seek space and time to research and write during the academic year.  Join colleagues, who will be independently working, in a common space in Rose Library.  Leave with a sense of accomplishment and with increased scholarly productivity. 

Note:  Coffee or other drinks are available for purchase at Rose Library Starbucks or Memorial Hall JavaCity.  A CFI consultant will not be present during Faculty Writing Studio programs during the academic year. However, scholarship consultations are available on an ongoing basis and may be requested in advance by submitting a Scholarship Consultation request.  These requests need to be made a week in advance to ensure availability of a consultant during the Faculty Writing Studio time frame. 

Faculty participants will make progress toward this program outcome:

  • Advancing research and/or writing projects during the academic year.  

Faculty participants will make progress toward these scholarship outcomes:

  • Enhancing scholarly productivity, and 
  • Practicing the integration of scholarship with teaching and other career aspirations.

We want this program to be welcoming, accessible, and inclusive for all of our participants. Please reach out to us at or (568-4846) with any considerations (e.g., disability, wellness, cultural, dietary, etc.) you want us to know about.
