The Writing Excellence Initiative: What is it and What Does it Mean for Elon?

This week is Writing Week at CUPID Studio! I’m going to kick off Writing Week with a post about the Writing Excellence Initiative at Elon.

thePhoenixWe all remember the “I Write” campaign last Spring that featured student, faculty, and staff who are proud to say they write, but how many of us actually know what all the fuss was about? Well the “I Write” campaign was meant to raise awareness for Elon’s Writing Excellence Initiative (WEI).

The WEI is Elon’s five-year Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools requires all of their accredited institutions to form and enact a QEP that enhances education at the institution. The goal of the WEI is to enhance writing education so that every Elon graduate will be able to write proficiently. This plan includes several strategies including remodeling the Writing Center, developing a Center for the Advancement of Writing, and modifying the way writing is taught in all Elon classrooms.

The WEI is almost a full year in-progress. Writing Center Consultants have been working with some classes and professors to achieve writing objectives set forth by the WEI and plans for the Center for the Advancement of Writing are progressing. In the next four years, we can expect writing to become a pillar of any Elon education.

For more detailed information on the WEI, please visit the WEI website.
