Everything you need to achieve your BIG goals faster this summer

without sacrificing your health or forsaking your family.

Summer Program: May 27 to July 1

Registration is closed. Stay tuned for information on fall program.


...so you can finally have enough time to rest, connect with loved ones, and focus on all those important projects languishing on your to-do list?


The myth of an expansive summer is strong among faculty.

The problem: There's always more work than time in academe, even in the summer.

Which means your summer break is never as long, leisurely, or generative as it seems in the spring.
That's the bad news. The good news?

It's not too late to ensure this summer goes better than last summer and the one before that and the one before that.

Overall Experience
Having tried lots of different writing accountability groups and programs, I have never fallen into such a quick, supportive writing rhythm with a community of scholars whose company I look forward to each Friday.
Stephanie Sadre-Orafai, PhD, Associate Professor 
Focus Fridays have transformed the way I approach the end of the week--rather than dread about "running out of time," I feel cared for, supported, and productive as we learn to set reasonable goals and celebrate every small step forward.

Meet Roxanne, your coach

Psychologist. Full Professor. WellAcademic Owner.

After almost 20 years in the academy (and 10 as a faculty coach), I know all too well how difficult it can be to attend to both work and life during the summer, especially if you're

✔ A caregiver. 
✔ A woman of color or other minoritized faculty.
✔ In a toxic environment.

The result: A "break" where you feel forced to work way more than you want to the detriment of your health and relationships.  

No judgment here. Trust me. I've been there and got the t-shirt.

That's why I poured all of my psychological training, research, and practice into the development of Focus Fridays - an inclusive workspace that offers the perfect combo of structure, guidance, and support. 

Since 2020, this program has helped 90+ faculty manifest summers (and semesters) of achievement, belonging, and well-being.

Let's work together to transform your work-life for the better this summer.


Since I started Focus Fridays, I have been both more productive and more relaxed by relying on this time to ground me in a regular writing practice. 
Adrianna M. Santos, PhD, Assistant Professor
I loved the energy of the sessions and it helped me focus each week in a way that felt supportive and fun.
Ching-In Chen, PhD, Assistant Professor
Focus Fridays is the most empowering, energizing, and rewarding professional development program that I know.  
Miki Hirayama, PhD, Associate Professor
The simultaneous gifts of focus and community are priceless!
