About the Institute

The Scholarly Writing Institute (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 twelve 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.

The previous Scholarly Writing Institute held on campus in summer 2012 was an overwhelming success. Faculty members expressed a need for assistance in overcoming a variety of 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.
