Welcome to Writing Across URI!
The goal of this program is to support YOU—faculty who write and want their students to be effective writers. Writing Across URI is committed to creating a culture of writing at the university, by helping faculty with their own academic and professional writing and also by asking more of students as writers. Check back with this site for future opportunities to share your writing and to be an advocate for writing instruction. This site offers some information, guidance, and resources, but there will be chances to participate in seminars, writing retreats, or other events–both for your own writing and for your teaching.
