Expository Writing Program Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Collaboration Grant Winners

The Expository Writing Program is thrilled to announce 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. This EWP grant was supported by the Office of Minority of Affairs and Diversity.

Five collaboration groups were selected in Fall 2017 and are working on projects in Winter and Spring 2018 that range from developing Indigenous-centered writing curricula to curating an anti-racist writing pedagogy workshop series. Please look for announcements concerning these activities on the English Newsfeed and Newsletter.
