FDC Seminars and Workshops

Research Writer’s Collaborative: The Writers’ Collaborative is an opportunity for EMU faculty and RWC Book Jacket Lecturers to meet within disciplinary areas, support each other in developing realistic writing goals (i.e. development of a conference paper, draft of an article, revision of a book chapter, etc.) and gain helpful feedback to meet the expectations of our research agendas.

Internal Research Awards Writing Workshop: The FDC partners with EMU Research and the URSLA Committee to help give faculty more information on what awards are offered internally by the University. Faculty who attend these workshops also receive important feedback on how their proposals will be reviewed by a general academic audience.

(ISCFC) is an applied research institute that offers pre- and post-grant support to faculty, including networking and support for interdisciplinary projects, peer support to help develop projects from proposal to implementation, assistance with grant design and writing, budget development and data collection.
