Writing Across the Curriculum

  • Writing Across the Curriculum

    Teach, Write, Teach Writing 

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

    In fall 2012, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Office of the Provost committed to creating a university-wide initiative with a multi-faceted agenda:

    Faculty Development

    • Provide faculty development for those teaching writing-intensive courses, including workshops and training for those interested in proposing writing-intensive courses
    • Provide support for all faculty across the university in implementing writing assignments into their courses


    • Provide support and consultation to the university-wide Liberal Studies Committee as needed in revising writing-intensive course requirements
    • Assist faculty in completing documentation for writing-intensive faculty and course designations


    • Create a research agenda for studying and understanding the effectiveness of how writing is taught and learned in the university curriculum
    • Assist faculty in creating individual research projects on how writing is taught and learned in their own classrooms
    • Continually collect data from students and faculty on their perceptions of how writing is taught and learned at IUP
