UD Faculty Accountability Program

Based on the highly successful faculty success program sponsored by the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD), the UD Faculty Accountability Program will create supportive communities where faculty members will be challenged and celebrated in their respective journeys to become more productive scholars. These groups of no more than four professors and a coach will meet for an hour every week during the fall semester to set writing goals, report on progress, and discuss effective strategies for navigating some of the challenges of academia. All of the coaches are members of the UD faculty who have participated in the NCFDD Faculty Success Program.

Are you a faculty member who would like to build greater accountability and stay on task with your writing this semester?  If so, you may be interested in participating in a Write-on-Site group. Write-on-site is simple:  you show up at the designated time and place, you settle in, and you work for whatever time period you’ve promised yourself. Participants in various write-on-sites for the last few years have reported the importance of adding this routine to their weekly schedule as well as the value of Write-on-Sites in helping guard and protect the time they dedicate to writing each day.  If you would like to join a Write-on-Site, just bring your laptop or whatever writing materials you need, look for the host, sit down, and get started. You can come for as much or as little of the writing time as you choose and can come and go as you please. This is an open invitation to any faculty member who wants to set up on-campus writing time and have added personal accountability.

If you have any questions, please contact: Stephanie Kerschbaum, UD Faculty Accountability Program Coordinator: kersch@udel.edu.
