Faculty Opportunities

WE Write

University Writing invites applications from academic programs (majors, minors, certificates, or other curricular configurations) for WE Write. The goal of WE Write is to ensure undergraduate academic programs have support from University Writing to achieve their disciplinary or professional student writing goals. Participating programs will engage in reflection, planning, creation, and assessment of writing, and they will earn a new WE course designation that will appear in course listings and students’ transcripts, making high-impact writing instruction more visible to students, stakeholders, graduate schools, and industry partners.

Applications are due February 13, 2022.
