Program in Writing and Rhetoric Mission and History

Hands typing on keyboard.


The mission of the Program in Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) is to offer high-quality writing courses to UW students that emphasize ethical composing across difference. To fulfill this mission, we train and mentor instructors in antiracist, accessible, translingual, and multimodal pedagogies that enact practices of inclusion and equity. With the Program for Writing Across Campus (PWAC) and in collaboration with numerous campus partners, we actively create and support knowledge-building about writing and writing instruction broadly within the program, the English department, and across campus.
