Research Accountability Groups

Writing Retreats

The Center for Faculty Excellence will host two writing retreats in Spring 2020.  They are open to all research-active faculty who wish to have uninterrupted time to work on their research.

There will be no planned programming, instead it will be a time for faculty to focus on their research/writing goals and hopefully be very productive!  Lunch will be provided (must register and order a lunch). Use the links below to register to attend.

14-Day Writing Challenge

The National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) will host an 14-day writing challenge from March 23 to April 5.

From the NCFDD website:

The 14-Day Challenge is an opportunity for you to experiment with daily writing, online community, and supportive accountability. It’s very simple:

  1. You commit to write every day for at least 30 minutes.
  2. At the beginning of your writing time, you login to our online community, start the timer, complete your writing, and post your progress at the end.
  3. You take five minutes to support other writers in your group by commenting on their progress.

This is NOT for you if: (1) you don’t want to post your progress on a daily basis and/or (2) you don’t want to interact with other people.

To participate, you must first activate your NCFDD membership (FREE for Purdue faculty), then register to participate. Registration closes on March 19.
