  • Community and civic engagement in writing project initiatives place our students, faculty, and program in active partnerships that enhance life and learning for the people of Arizona and the world.
  • Professional development support encourages leadership and collaborations among Writing Program faculty from diverse academic backgrounds.
  • Research on writing instruction theories and practices advances the knowledge and expertise in the field and in the program.
