The Department of Writing is a unit within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The mission of the Department of Writing is to develop in students the ability to write well in a variety of contexts and to promote good writing and good writing pedagogy in our academic and non-academic communities.
The Department of Writing strives to foster a learning environment for students that promotes excellent writing, critical thinking, and creativity in print and digital modes. We prepare lifelong learners and versatile writers with local and global perspectives, who can apply their knowledge and leadership to a variety of writing contexts and throughout their future professions.
As writers and teachers of writing, we value an academic environment that involves community, collaboration, critical thinking, interdisciplinary research, a progressive reliance on technology for rhetorical ends, a connection to the local, national, and international writing communities, and a commitment to supporting academic, creative, and professional writing in our university and the local community.
