These monthly meetings help faculty "get in the mood" and focus singularly on their writing. They allow faculty to come together and commit to writing in a common space for a certain number of hours with no external distractions. We provide coffee, tea and cookies to fuel your work and collaboration with fellow faculty. During these monthly meetings, the Center facilitates the formation of small writing groups of like-minded colleagues with similar projects or writing goals.

Photographing Democratically When Everyone Is A Photographer
If everyone is a photographer, what makes a “good” photograph? Increasingly, photography serves a fundamental and accessible form of expression in every dimension of life including education. Being able to make a strong, compelling photograph is more important than ever. At the same time, being able to read a photograph and, more broadly, being able to read imagery is integral to critical thinking. As a teacher of photographer, one of Professor Geil's most significant challenges is finding ways to radically change the way students already photograph in their daily lives.
