The Center for Excellence in Writing helps faculty across
campus to better integrate writing into their course curricula. Our
purpose is to help you communicate writing standards and
expectations within your discipline. We also want to support your
students in synthesizing what they're learning in the classroom.
Students are thus better equipped to transfer their knowledge to
new contexts, while improving their written expression in a given
academic field or discipline.
We are happy to meet with individual faculty members to discuss
ways we can provide support for writing instruction across the
disciplines. The following resources might also be of
