Expository Writing Program Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Collaboration Grant Winners 2018-19

The Expository Writing Program announces the recipients for the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Collaboration Grant. This grant is for graduate student groups and is focused on developing composition curriculum, teacher resources, and research initiatives that center issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the writing classroom. Additionally, these grants seek to foster collaboration, conversation, and community among writing teachers invested in equity work. You can read more about the EWP seed grant and application process here.
Three collaboration groups were selected in Fall 2018 and are working on projects in Winter and Spring 2019 that range from developing equity-based curricula centering "race and social media" and "storytelling and power" to curating a workshop foregrounding equity for UWHS and Pre-doctoral instructors. Please look for announcements concerning these activities on the English Newsfeed and Newsletter.
