Welcome to the First-Year Writing Program (General Education)

Welcome to the Writing Program, where our mission is you!

In our courses, you will meet dedicated faculty who value student voice and who will take the time to get to know you and your writing.

Because we place such a high value on personalized education, all of our writing classes are small, and our approach is student-centered. In our courses, you’ll have opportunities to discuss and analyze topics that matter to you. You’ll get individual feedback on your writing from teachers and peers. You’ll have opportunities to form mentoring relationships with teachers, and to build community with classmates.

Our curriculum stems from our core values, to empower students’ voices, and to use writing to make a difference in the communities we care about. We are prepared to deliver a high-quality educational experience in all modalities (face-to-face or online). We look forward to getting to know you and your writing.
