Campus Champion

Professor of English David Franke understands writing can be a high-risk activity — not just for students, but for teachers and colleagues too. That’s why his best work goes beyond poetry and creative non-fiction; it involves creating safe spaces for writers to experiment. David regularly consults with the Faculty Writing Group and leads students on a transformational retreat to Raquette Lake. Another example: the Seven Valleys Writing Project’s Summer Institute, a three-week course for K-12 educators, soon will attract the area’s brightest teaching minds. For nearly a decade, the regional program that David oversees has taught participants to learn and lead through their writing. Read more about Summer Institute
