    Support for Scholarly Projects

    For some of us, the next month at home could provide needed time to move forward on a scholarly project or two.  Would it help to charge your brain batteries to engage in some creative work? 

    • Scholarship Partners Program --  Want a partner or two?  Missing some social interaction?  Need someone with skills that complement your own?  Sign up here (Links to an external site.) to share what you can offer and/or what you are seeking--this is research "dating"!  Contact Dr. Perri Druen for more information. Sponsored by Center for Academic Innovation
    • Scholarship Consultations --  Would an individual consultation help you get started or get you back on track?  Reach out to Dr. Perri Druen at .  She is ready to bounce around ideas if you’re looking for a new project; help you think of ways to pivot if the pandemic derailed your research, pin down some analytical strategies for data you already have, trouble-shoot thorny design issues, give feedback on IRB applications, or talk through personal barriers—or help you find someone who can add what you need.

    Faculty Writing Academy

    Dr. Gabriel Cutrufello will be facilitating this wonderful scholarship opportunity for faculty development! We will use Wendy Belcher's Writing Your Journal Article in Twelve Weeks, Second Edition: A Guide to Academic Publishing Success.

    The main focus of the academy will be to develop an academic article or book chapter manuscript (or equivalent) for submission by the end of the academy. Belcher's book focuses on very specific activities that have been shown to successfully produce published academic scholarship. Weekly sessions on Wednesdays at 4 PM, beginning on November 4 through January 26.

    Please contact Gabe ( if you have any questions or are still interested in joining us!
