Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection includes business operation records, budgets, student handouts, course materials, and general information concerning the teaching of writing courses at UC Davis. Also included are newspaper clippings and recordings of guest speakers and events.
The University Writing Program "promotes excellence in written communication among UC Davis students and faculty and emphasizes the importance of writing in the larger community." The program, founded in 2004 as an expansion of the UC Davis Campus Writing Center, offers discipline-specific writing classes for undergraduates and workshops for graduate students as well as an undergraduate minor in writing and a graduate-level interdisciplinary emphasis in Writing, Rhetoric, and Composition Studies. It is the administrative home of Writing on the Edge, a journal on writing and teaching of writing, and Prized Writing, which publishes juried undergraduate writing.
