Research Convening

TCU Faculty Research Convening

The TCU Faculty Research Convening is a two-day workshop that highlights research conducted by TCU faculty. The major focus of the research convening is the dissemination of research and networking among TCU faculty, and the development of important conversations and research topics such as pedagogy practices, cultural continuance, and faculty development. The two-day convening consists of presentations from faculty across disciplines and has encompassed the areas of research, best practices, curriculum development, pedagogy, and the success of current programs at TCUs.

TCU Research Journal

In 2016, the College Fund initiated the first peer-reviewed journal, the Tribal College and University Research Journal (TCURJ), which focused solely on research conducted by TCU faculty. The TCURJ is designed to provide current TCU faculty who are conducting research with an avenue for publication. The College Fund believes it is critical to support TCU faculty in conducting research that benefits TCUs and Native communities, by disseminating research to both Native communities and the wider research community.

Intensive Writing Retreat to Develop Manuscripts for Publication

The College Fund recognizes the importance of writing retreats as supplemental support within current and previous Faculty Development initiatives. A recent external evaluation of faculty fellowships revealed that TCU faculty identified a need for supplemental support in the area of developing manuscripts for publication. The Intensive Writing Retreat (WR) provides the space and time that many TCU faculty need to focus on developing a manuscript from their research. The WR also provides mentorship and presentations from senior Native faculty in the development of manuscripts, conference proposals, presentations (poster, roundtable and conference etiquette.
