Writing Committee

The Writing Committee will provide oversight of the Writing learning objective of the general education curriculum, including but not limited to the Writing-Intensive requirement. The Committee will collaborate with the Writing Center to provide resources and support for faculty integrating writing into their courses, including ongoing faculty-development workshops. The Committee will make itself available to develop workshops. The Committee will make itself available to review syllabi for general education courses that include writing as a learning objective, and will work with faculty and departments to support successful implementation. The Committee will engage in an on-going review of the Writing learning objective, and will recommend changes as appropriate to promote success in student writing University-wide.
