The College Fund’s Faculty Development Office, with generous support from the Henry Luce Foundation, is hosting the 7th Intensive Writing Retreat for tribal college and university (TCU) faculty on May 24-25, 2023. These two-day writing retreats provide up to 8 faculty the opportunity to receive mentorship and training on:

  • transitioning from writing a dissertation to writing journal articles
  • developing a manuscript for publication
  • conducting and writing a literature review
  • Indigenous research methodologies
  • the journal submission process
  • translating your research into presentations

By the end of the retreat, you will have refined your concepts and outline, worked on (writing/editing) at least one section, received personalized feedback and support from senior scholars, and identified areas to prioritize after the retreat.

The deadline to apply is Friday, March 31, 2023. Applications will be reviewed by a small committee and faculty will be notified about the status of their application by Tuesday, April 11. Faculty accepted to the retreat must attend both days in full and their travel expenses will be paid.
