Faculty Writing Studios are offered throughout the semester. Sign up for as few or as many as will fit your schedule but please sign up at least an hour before the session to receive a conferencing link.


During COVID-19, many JMU faculty have found it challenging to balance their teaching responsibilities with their core responsibilities of scholarship/research/creative endeavors. During the academic year the demands of teaching and service are intense and scholarship gets placed on the backburner. Need the space and time, and accountability to advance or complete that research, writing, or creative project? Join colleagues, who after a brief check-in with a CFI Faculty Associate, will be independently working in a common online space. At the close of each session participants will check-out by sharing their short-term goals for their project. Leave with a sense of accomplishment, a clear sense of your next steps, and increased scholarly productivity. 

Note: A CFI consultant WILL be available during the Faculty Writing Studio program this academic year. However, scholarship consultations are also available on an ongoing basis and may be requested in advance by submitting a Scholarship Consultation request

Facilitators:

Faculty participants will make progress toward:

  • Advancing scholarship and/or writing projects during the academic year;
  • Enhancing scholarly productivity; and 
  • Practicing the integration of scholarship with teaching and other career aspirations.

Our programs are intended for JMU faculty or staff only. If you are a graduate student or administrator and would like to attend, please sign up and leave a note at the end of the survey.

We want this program to be welcoming, accessible, and inclusive for all of our participants. Please describe any considerations (e.g., disability, wellness, cultural, etc.) you want us to know about in the registration survey. You may also reach out to us personally at Tiffany Runion, runiontt@jmu.edu or (540)860-0524.
