                                   14 Day Research Challenge

14 Day Research Challenge - Experiment with working on your research for 30 minutes a day for two weeks (Monday – Friday). Research means anything that advances your scholarship. This can include, but is not limited to, tasks like drafting a paper or a presentation, data analysis, or manuscript revision. Since participants will work independently, we have created an online forum where we can build community, encouragement and accountability each day of the challenge. The Challenge is co-sponsored by the Tri-Co Junior Faculty Writing Group and the Office of the Provost.

               For more information on the Challenge, visit the website.

Funding Your Scholarship


Mellon Tri-College Forum - Faculty Development Initiatives funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Tri-College Faculty Forum Grant was established to support initiatives and programs that foster collaborations between faculty at Bryn Mawr, Haverford and Swarthmore Colleges. These collaborations can be in the areas of research, pedagogy, governance or service, and work/life balance.

Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts Initiative is a collective effort to discover and share ways for using blended learning to support the learner-centered pedagogies, meaningful faculty-student interactions, and focus on deep, active and authentic learning that liberal arts colleges value.

Develop Your Teaching

Teaching and Learning Institute for Faculty (TLI) provides forums for exploration of classroom practice. Funded originally by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and now supported jointly by Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges, the TLI embraces a partnership model of faculty and student academic development.

Bryn Mawr College Writing Center for Faculty provides resources on teaching methods, for all disciplines, to improve student's writing.

Participate in Community

Faculty Conversations Series

This series includes workshops for all faculty. Provided by the Provost’s Office, faculty gather and discuss topics of common interest. This past academic year included discussions on the appointment process, mentoring opportunities, funding opportunities, and blended learning. Register here for the Faculty Conversation Series.

Works In Progress Lunches

The Provost generally selects two faculty working on a similar topic but from different disciplines to informally share their projects with the community.  Typically, there are 2 to 3 lunches scheduled per semester. Register here for upcoming Works In Progress Lunches.

Friday Finds

Friday Finds is a series of informal chats about historical and cultural objects in Bryn Mawr’s Special Collections. All of the events begin at 3:00pm in the Special Collections Seminar Room, on the second floor of Canaday Library, and last about an hour.
