May 23, 2011 - Teresa McConlogue, a staff member in the Thinking Writing Program at Queen Mary, University of London, led a faculty writing retreat workshop at Writing Across the Curriculum's Research and Writing Institute on May 18-19, 2011.

Funded by a Galpin International Exchange grant, the event was dedicated to helping faculty develop their own writing projects and to consider applying workshop principles in the classroom.

More than 10 Quinnipiac faculty members participated. Faculty represented the fields of English, history, sociology, management, interactive digital design, communications, education and political science.

Faculty feedback following the event was overwhelmingly positive. QUWAC plans to host additional faculty writing retreats in the future.
