Writing – defined broadly to include oral, visual, digital, and inscriptional modes of communication – is essential to all academic and civic endeavors. Writing enables scholarly exchange of ideas; it facilitates civic and professional participation; it inspires creativity and innovation; it transforms students into leaders, activists, inventors, artists, teachers, and citizens of the world.

The CWRU Writing Program’s mission is to ensure that all students develop sophisticated communicative strategies through understanding their own writing processes; assessing the contexts and audiences for their ideas; and articulating their messages clearly, passionately, and persuasively.
