Our programs and services are designed to provide the
resources our students and faculty need to improve the
quality of writing across the curriculum. To this end,
we provide support to seniors writing an Honors Thesis,
we train faculty and TAs on how to prevent plagiarism
and respond appropriately to cheating, and we facilitate
the Academic Integrity Workshops offered to incoming
first-year students during Orientation.
The staff offers consultations and workshops for faculty
who wish to incorporate more writing in their courses,
grade papers more effectively, and design writing and
research assignments. We assign Writing Fellows to
classes to assist students with written assignments.
We sponsor faculty forums, colloquia, and conferences
designed to promote campus-wide discussions about the
most effective ways of teaching and learning writing,
research, and speaking skills.
