Writing Enriched Courses

Each semester, the WCC works with faculty to identify potential undergraduate “writing-enriched” courses. These courses include significant writing using the discourse of its discipline.

The WCC provides Writing Fellows to WE courses. Writing Fellows are course-embedded writing consultants who assist students with their writing assignments for their particular course.
