Faculty Writing Support Program

Feeling challenged focusing on your academic writing? The Faculty Writing Support Program, led by professors Emily Abrams Ansari and Kelly Olson, in partnership with Western Research, is pleased to offer a series of initiatives and resources to help you un-block your writing and take it to the next level.

Summer Faculty Writing Retreat

Enjoy the short – and long-term benefits of uninterrupted time to focus on your writing and working alongside your colleagues. We will set personal goals for each day and discuss progress at lunchtime, but otherwise the bulk of our time will be spent working independently on our writing.

Coffee, snacks, and lunch will be provided, so there is absolutely nothing else to think about. Max. 30 participants – register now to reserve your spot!


  • Monday, June 12 | 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. | Room TBD
