The Howe Writing Across the Curriculum Programs, under the umbrella of the Howe Center for Writing Excellence, offer a variety of programs and resources to help faculty from all disciplines effectively include writing in their courses. These include long-term team training for department members, workshops for departments and programs, and a year-long WAC Workshop Series, individual consultations with faculty, feedback on assignments, and a variety of teaching resources and handouts. We also provide writing support for faculty themselves, in the form of Writing Retreats (formerly Boot Camps), writing groups, and weekly writing hours in the HCWE.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Howe Writing Across the Curriculum Programs is to ensure that all Miami faculty and graduate teaching assistants are able to effectively include writing as a means of supporting learning in their courses and programs, and that a core group of faculty across all disciplines are both empowered and willing to propose and teach writing intensive courses (including advanced writing courses and CAS writing courses) that meet the needs of their students and departments.

A secondary part of our mission is to support the writing of faculty members themselves.
