Who We Are & What We Do
Who is the College of Arts and Sciences Writing Program?
Director of the Writing Program
John Webster (Associate Professor of English) has been Director of the Writing Program for the College of Arts and Sciences since 2003.

What does the Writing Program do?
We support students in completing faculty-assigned work through access to writing center mentoring. Creating the Odegaard Writing and Research Center (OWRC) was a Writing Program initiative designed to support students.
We support incoming international and ESL students with innovative "writing-ready" courses, like English 108, as part of Early Fall Start.
We support the work of writing programs throughout the college by coordinating programs, writing centers, and campus administrative offices.
