What we do
The purpose of the University Writing Board is to encourage and to support the development and the maintenance of writing-intensive courses in all academic disciplines at SUNY New Paltz. Fundamental to this program is the premise that writing constitutes an important means of learning in all disciplines. Writing is a complex, cognitive process that involves translating thoughts to words, as well as questioning, reflecting, and analyzing in order to seek clarity and meaning. Writing is a means by which a person discovers, creates, and communicates knowledge.
To support the writing-intensive program, the Writing Board:
- Conducts workshops that introduce the philosophy of writing as a mode of learning.
- Provides opportunities for faculty members to share ideas and approaches.
- Sponsors seminars and programs on writing-across-the-disciplines.
- Provides ongoing support for faculty members' efforts to make courses writing-intensive.
Recommends courses that have been proposed by faculty members as writing-intensive.
