Faculty Writing Assistance

Though often subsumed under their roles as researchers, teachers, and scholars, writing plays an integral part in faculty development. Villanova University supports faculty in their writing endeavors by offering on-on-one consulting for projects such as journal articles, grant proposals, book-length manuscripts, revise and resubmit edits, book proposals, and course assignments. Villanova aspires to make the process of writing more efficient, collaborative, productive, and rewarding.  For additional information, please contact Dr. Emily Carson at, 610-519-4273.


Other Faculty Resources

The Office of the Provost regularly issues policy documents, publications and reports usually in a handbook format. Specific policies can be found in these publications. read more
