Spring 2021

Promotion & Tenure Workshop

Friday, March 12, 12:45 - 2:00pm

The Office of Faculty Development will host a session for faculty who are on the tenure track or anticipate a tenure track position someday.
The typical criteria for tenure and promotion are scholarship, teaching and service. All universities subscribe to this but how these terms are interpreted can vary from institution to institution, school to school, and even department to department. Learning how they are applied and measured at CWRU is an important aspect of becoming familiar with the culture of the institution.

Provost Vinson, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education & Academic & Faculty Affairs Don Feke and Vice Provost for Graduate Education & Academic & Faculty Affairs Chuck Rozek will attend this session to share what the university is looking for, how you should set about preparing your case for tenure, and to answer questions.

More information and Registration will be available soon on CampusGroups.

Weekly Open Writing

We are continuing Weekly Open Writing this spring, in an online format

The Weekly Open Writing program offers accountability and community to support writing productivity. The scheduled sessions are blocks of unstructured, quiet writing time. This spring, the program will continue in an online format, beginning the first week of January.
Mondays and Thursdays | 10:00am - 12:00pm
Register to receive the Zoom links


We asked those who had participated in Weekly Open Writing during the Fall 2019 semester what they thought about the program. This is what they said:

"I love the dedicated space and the comaraderie. There are few writing groups on campus, and with so few new hires it is a particular challenge for me -- as a junior faculty member -- to find a writing community. This program also helps with my accountability (to myself) by automatically carving out and protecting time each week for writing."

"It provided accountability -- just having a place to go helps. It's easier to schedule in writing time when there is a dedicated place to do it, where I know I won't have interruptions."

"So far I have completed two book chapters and a proposal for my next book, two journal articles (accepted, double-blind-peer-reviewed), and several book reviews. I also occasionally use the time to take notes on new and important research in my sub-field. Thanks again for all that you do to support us!"
