Since 2018, the Duke University Faculty Write Program and NC Campus Compact have hosted an Engaged Scholar Writing Retreat. The retreat was proposed and designed by Dr. Jennifer Ahern-Dodson during her term as a 2018-19 NC Campus Compact Engaged Faculty Scholar.
This gathering is intended for faculty who teach an engaged pedagogy such as service-learning, community-based research, or participatory action research and who are working to advance their scholarship. The retreat includes discussion on strategies for effective writing, opportunities to write, and networking with other North Carolina faculty and administrators who are working on community-engaged scholarship. Each year the retreat features a conversation with an accomplished NC engaged scholar.
The retreat is facilitated by Dr. Jennifer Ahern-Dodson, Assistant Professor of the Practice in the Thompson Writing Program and Director of the Duke Faculty Write Program.
