Who we are

The Writing Program provides writing assistance to all University divisions, schools, and academic and administrative programs.  We teach for-credit and non-credit courses, seminars, workshops, workshop series.  We also provide training in writing pedagogy, individual tutoring for undergraduates and graduate students, and consultations with faculty and staff on the writing needs of specific individuals, departments, and programs.  

A key to serving so many different constituencies is strong integration of writing instruction at many different levels.  Today's undergraduates are tomorrow's graduate students and professional school students.   We help undergraduates develop writing skills they will use throughout their careers. We help writers work within the disciplinary expectations of their fields, but also prepare writers to flourish in an academic and professional environment that is increasingly interdisciplinary and collaborative.
