Writing Across the Curriculum

Connect with IUP Writing Across the Curriculum on Social Media

Teach, Write, Teach Writing

The Writing Across the Curriculum program provides support for faculty universitywide in implementing writing into their courses. The program aims to create and sustain a community of writers at IUP.

The Writing Across the Curriculum initiative is in its beginning stages of development. In Fall 2012, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences committed to creating a universitywide initiative with four main agendas:

  • Provide faculty development for those teaching writing-intensive courses, including workshops and training for those interested in proposing writing-intensive courses, and support for all faculty across the university in implementing writing assignments into their courses
  • Provide support and consultation to the Liberal Studies Committee as needed in revising writing-intensive course requirements
  • Create a research agenda for studying and understanding the effectiveness of how writing is taught and learned in the university curriculum
  • Foster a community of writers through various media (such as contests, readings, workshops, newsletters, etc.) and relationships (with the Writing Center, the IUP Libraries, and various departments across campus)
