Foster a culture of writing at Westfield State. This culture includes a heightened awareness of the ways that writing can be used as a mode of learning and critical thinking, as well as a way to communicate within academic and professional arenas. This culture also includes a heightened sense of community among faculty around the teaching of writing, so that faculty can turn to colleagues as they continue developing writing curricula, for both mentorship and the exchange of ideas.
Support faculty through professional development opportunities and one-on-one consultations as they develop writing curriculum for courses across the curriculum.
Support curricular changes that ensure that students perform writing assignments throughout their four years in order to develop rhetorical flexibility and meet discipline-specific writing outcomes.
Work with other groups and initiatives on campus in order to better understand areas of need and to showcase approaches to teaching with writing being used on the campus.
