The mission of the SWS Program is to enable students to write effectively* for multiple purposes and audiences through the integration of writing across the curriculum.
The ability to write effectively in a variety of rhetorical situations is the hallmark of a liberally educated person. The most effective way to help students achieve this goal is by providing a framework for courses that integrate writing with content. The writing instruction in these courses is supported by current research and theory in writing.
* Effective writing is sensitive to the rhetorical situation and genre constraints. It meets established standards for style and correctness in that situation.
