Program in Writing and Rhetoric Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Collaboration Grant Winners 2021-22

The Expository Writing Program is proud to announce the recipients for the 2021-22 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, this grant seeks to support projects that promote more equitable, inclusive, diverse, accessible, and socially just writing practices, curriculum, and classrooms and that contribute to our teaching community, encourage collaboration, and nurture professional growth. You can read more about the EWP seed grant and application process here.

Two collaboration groups were selected during Winter Quarter 2022 and worked on projects during Winter and Spring 2022. Below you can find project titles, brief descriptions, and team members.
