Writing Enriched Curriculum
The Writing Enriched Curriculum program (WEC) is a university-sponsored initiative to promote the teaching of writing in all academic disciplines. The WEC project is designed to further the university’s goal, outlined in the 2013-14 Strategic Plan, to “focus on building student and faculty writing and oral communication skills.” In keeping with the AACU’s identification of writing education as a high-impact practice in undergraduate education, WEC offers faculty support for developing writing curricula that can make the teaching of writing a significant part of every major and degree program.
Below is a statement about the writing center that you can copy and paste into your current syllabus or add to your Canvas page.
Most universities have a writing center, a place for students, faculty, and staff to meet and talk about writing. The Writing Center here at OU is a resource I encourage you to use. As a writer you will want to seek feedback from many different readers. The writing consultants at the writing center are able to talk with you about your writing--at any stage in the process and for any course you are taking.
You can make an appointment (online or by phone) and you can drop in whenever they are open. I urge you to visit the web site for more information: www.write.ou.edu.
The OU Writing Center welcomes all writers and does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability. We consider difference to be a seed for learning, writing, and a just society.
