Howe Center for Writing Excellence

The Howe Center for Writing Excellence is a team of faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students from a variety of disciplines who are committed to supporting the learning and teaching of writing at Miami University, and nationwide.

Programs

Our mission is to ensure that Miami supports its students in developing as effective writers in college, and fully prepares all of its graduates to excel as clear, concise, and persuasive writers in their careers, communities, and personal lives. We pursue our mission through two key initiatives:

WRITING-FOCUSED

The Howe Writing Center supports all Miami writers—students and faculty—with any writing they are doing and at any point in their process. Programming is run by HWC director, staff, Graduate Assistant Directors, and expertly trained undergraduate and graduate student writing consultants.

TEACHING-FOCUSED

The Howe Writing Across the Curriculum Program provides faculty and graduate teaching assistants innovative supporting for teaching with and about writing.
