Scholarly Productions Workshop

In an effort to support and facilitate faculty publications, creative works, and scholarly production, the Office of the Faculty Development sponsors a monthly Scholarly Productions Workshop. 

The Scholarly Productions Workshops seek to facilitate an atmosphere that expresses Howard University’s commitment to contributing to the black intelligentsia and their scholarship.

The topics for the panel discussions vary and the panel participants hail from a variety of Schools and Colleges across the University. This program is sponsored by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Office of Faculty Development in the Office of the Provost.
