Dana Driscoll (English, Writing Center) along with her colleagues Nadia Zamin (IUP alumna, PhD in English, 2017) and S. Rebecca Leigh, published an article titled "Self-Care as Professionalization: A Case for Ethical Doctoral Education in Composition Studies" in the flagship journal College Composition and Communication.

The article reports on a study of 433 doctoral faculty and students using survey and interview data. In this study the authors explore professional self-care practices and related issues of academic guilt, imposter syndrome, and burnout. They argue that self-care should be included as a professional practice, taught and modeled, to prepare doctoral students for careers as functional and healthy faculty.
