Mission

The Writing Program is committed to research in the fields of rhetoric and composition and serves the university community by providing courses, programming, and instructional resources that

  • enable students to write effectively, think critically, and develop rhetorical awareness about print, visual, oral, and digital texts.
  • enable the development of theoretically informed and pedagogically grounded first-year writing instructors.
  • enable faculty across the disciplines to incorporate writing as a learning tool into their courses and to offer instruction for students learning to communicate through disciplinary genres.
