SSRC Writing Retreat

February 19, 2020

In collaboration with the Office of Research & Innovation, the Office of Faculty Affairs and the Drexel Writing Center, the Social Science Research Committee (SSRC) is offering a writing retreat on

Thursday, February 27, 2020
10:00am to 12:30pm
Korman 102 (Drexel Writing Center)

In this 2.5-hour morning retreat, we invite you to do something that can be surprisingly difficult in our busy faculty lives: Devote dedicated time to work on your writing.

For the first hour, you will participate in a workshop focusing on sentence-level clarity.

During the remainder of the retreat, you will have focused time—and a space—to work on a writing project in an open, studio-type environment during which you can write, talk with one another, and consult with members of the University Writing Program.

Interested in joining the retreat? Please register no later than Tuesday, February 25, 2020. Refreshments will be provided. 

The Social Science Research Committee (SSRC) aims at building a vibrant social science research community at Drexel University.   We are open to faculty members who are interested in human social behavior from all academic fields.  In the past year, we have organized method training, civic engagement research forum, visit to

DC to meet federal grant officers, etc. We are planning activities to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration between social and natural/engineering sciences, longer-term collaboration between faculty and interested undergraduate students, etc.

If you are interested in joining the SSRC, please submit a request to join the group. Faculty from all academic fields are welcome.
