Supporting Writing Across Our Campus

Writing Across URI is committed to supporting all forms of writing across the URI community.

To support a culture of writing at the University of Rhode Island, Writing Across URI works with faculty as both writers and instructors, and promotes the best student writing on campus in the annual Writing Award.

Through retreats, partnerships, individual consultations, and writing groups, Writing Across URI collaborates with faculty from all disciplines to develop projects that meet the needs of their careers, departments, and students.
