Faculty & Staff Writing Retreat

by Bob Shea, Associate Provost for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning


Roger Williams University’s first Faculty & Staff Writing Retreat was incredibly successful. The retreat was co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching & Learning, the Writing Center, and the University Library. Participants took part in more than 20 hours of professional development aimed at furthering their scholarship. It was held on January 12 & 13, 2016.



Participants had the opportunity to work with Barbara Kenney, Karen Bilotti, and Fredrika Quinn who were tireless in their consulting efforts over the course of the two days. Participants were effusive in their praise of the retreat, staff, venue, and food.


They also noted that the retreat provided them with the time and support to advance important projects.
