Writing Intensive Faculty Retreat:  June 11-13
Location: Mount Washington Hotel

CEITL Participation: 3 points
The UNH Writing Program is looking forward to reprising the well-received WI Faculty retreat experience, consisting of a three-day offsite at the Omni Mount Washington Hotel in early June followed by three 1/2-day sessions at UNH in the following year.  The salient goals of the retreat are to give faculty a more full awareness of the principles underlying WI courses, to equip them with practices to enhance working with student writing, and to promote connections among WI faculty. 

Made possible in part through the generosity of the Dey Family Fund.
