As a way of developing an active writing community at the university, the Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development sponsors Writing Spaces, a program that welcomes faculty from all ranks and disciplines to write together in a collegial, focused environment. Each meeting includes discussion about goals, blocks of writing time, and a lunchtime workshop.
