Writing Across the Curriculum supports writing instruction through the following two programs:

Teaching with Writing supports faculty, instructional staff, and teaching assistants as they integrate writing into their courses.

The Writing-Enriched Curriculum Project provides a process for enabling faculty groups to intentionally infuse germane writing instruction into all undergraduate curricula.

Grants for the Study of Writing in the Disciplines (WID Grants) support research into the ways in which writing can foster learning in and across the disciplines, and promote discussion throughout the University community on the study and teaching of writing.

The Minor in Literacy and Rhetorical Studies provides graduate students with a flexible, interdisciplinary minor.

The Minnesota Writing Project, a site of the National Writing Project, supports pre-Kā€“college teachers throughout the state.
