The position of UCI Campus Writing Coordinator was established in 2001 to support undergraduate writing across the campus. We focus on communication (writing and speaking) beyond the first year, offering consultations, workshops, and resources to faculty, lecturers, and TAs in every discipline. Our goal is to foster a culture of writing by forging connections between first-year composition and upper-division writing courses, between teachers and students as they work with writing in disciplinary contexts, and among faculty across the campus interested in improving student writing. We also work with departments and schools to develop coordinated writing plans. Our over-arching mission is to foster a robust and vibrant culture of writing at UCI, and to that end we sponsor a variety of activities, such as mini-conferences and guest speakers.

Finally, this year, the CWC, in conjunction with departments and programs across UCI, will be involved in a comprehensive assessment of both lower- and upper-division writing courses and programs. We look forward to learning more about and improving the quality of writing instruction at UCI.

We invite your participation in our various projects. Please contact us to request a consultation or to respond to anything on this site.
