Scholarly Research and Writing Groups (SWARGs)

A SWARG is a group of faculty members focused on mutual support for creative work, research, and writing. This kind of interaction has been shown to be highly effective at increasing individuals' productivity, as well as their overall satisfaction as teacher/scholars. 
Groups often form themselves from mutual interests, career stages, or departments, but an individual may apply and ask to be assigned to a group as well. Once accepted, each group may receive reimbursement for expenses up to $300 (per group) per year to cover lunches or meeting refreshments, copying papers, etc. To apply, please fill out this form and send to
