Each semester, University Writing offers a writing retreat that supports faculty and staff in powering through writing projects with a day of writing! This event is open to all Auburn faculty members. Writing retreat attendees will have the option to join the event virtually or in-person and can participate in a morning goal setting session, progress tracking check-ins, afternoon mindfulness breaks, and an afternoon debrief.

Faculty Academies for Writing

Individual assignments
Department curricula
High Impact Practices

Academies for Writing help faculty re-design writing assignments and revise curriculum to more meaningfully integrate opportunities for writing. Faculty can apply to participate as an individual in our summer Teaching with Writing Academy, which takes up a different focus each year (e.g., writing in large-enrollment classes, communicating research, creating effective writing assignments). Additionally, teams of faculty can apply for a Departmental Academy, the topic of which is determined by each team’s project proposal. All Academy participants are eligible to receive a stipend. Calls for Academy applications open each fall and spring.

Professional Development Workshops

Partnership with HRD
Workshops on professional writing and communication
For all full-time and TES employees

University Writing partners with Human Resource Development to offer workshops focused on professional writing and communication throughout the year. All full time and TES employees are eligible to attend.
