The University Writing Program is a division of RIT comprised of First Year Writing, the University Writing Commons, and Writing Across the Curriculum. The mission of the University Writing Program (UWP) is to advance writing excellence throughout RIT’s programs, colleges, and global locations.
We provide writing support to all RIT students, regardless of location, year level, or major and provide writing instruction support to any RIT faculty member. The UWP helps coordinate and develop resources across campusthat produce evidence of students’ achievement of writing-related student learning outcomes. Our mission is to cultivate vibrant environments for practicing, teaching, and researching writing.
