Faculty Writing Retreat

When: Monday - Friday, May 23 - 27, 2016

Where: IRRPP, 1253 S. Halsted St.

Part of IRRPP's Faculty Development Program, our Faculty WriteOut! is a week-long writing intensive retreat intended for IRRPP faculty fellows but open to faculty from all disciplines at UIC who study race and/or ethnicity. Faculty WriteOut! offers faculty support and structure for their writing and a focused time to concentrate solely on their writing practice. The retreat offers daily breakfast, light-filled writing spaces, accountability meetings with a writing coach, printing and copying, and workshops intended to support UIC faculty’s writing, publication, and tenure progress. WriteOut! retreats increase faculty capacity, build intellectual density, and grow an intellectual community on campus.

IRRPP offers two Faculty WriteOut! retreats, one in May and the other in July. The retreats are limited to 10 faculty per session. To maintain the momentum from WriteOut!, IRRPP offices are open throughout the year for Write-On-Site sessions for faculty and students who wish to continue coming together to write in a supportive environment.
