Since its establishment in 1987, the College Writing Program (CWP) has worked to integrate the practice of writing into courses across the curriculum. The CWP staff trains selected undergraduates as writing associates, who help students improve their writing. The CWP offers workshops for faculty and students and hosts noted specialists in writing and writing pedagogy.
