Research Accountability

14-Day Writing Challenge

October 18 – October 31, 2021

Join the next 14-day writing challenge offered on October 18 – October 31, 2021 by the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD).

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.

Writing Retreats

Are you looking for some focused time and accountability to work on your research this summer?  Attend a Writing Retreat hosted by the Center for Faculty Excellence!

A Writing Retreat provides a focused block of time and supportive environment for you to commit to and have some level of accountability for accomplishing a research goal. There will be no planned programming, instead it will be a time for you to focus on your research/writing goals and hopefully be very productive!

No writing retreats are currently scheduled.
