The Faculty Development Office supports scholarship at Buffalo State by organizing Faculty Writing Groups. These interdisciplinary groups of 4 - 6 faculty members typically meet every two to four weeks. Some groups meet simply to write, using accountability to others as a way to ensure they write on a regular basis. Other groups circulate manuscripts and meet mainly to share feedback on those manuscripts. Each group decides: (1) how often they will meet; (2) the dates, times, and lengths of their meetings; and, (3) how they can best use that time to impact their writing productivity.
The Faculty Development Office will create the groups, arrange for meeting rooms, send out meeting reminders, and serve as a resource for the groups. For more information or to join a Faculty Writing Group, please contact Sue McMillen, Faculty Development Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
