University Writing and Research Conference


The UWP hosts the semiannual University Writing and Research Conference once in the Fall semester and once in the Spring semester. At this event, University Writing (UW1020) students from the semester before who have been nominated by a faculty member will share their research and writing experiences with an audience comprised of fellow students, faculty, librarians, and friends.

Writing is a social act: Audiences shape writing and, in turn, writing shapes the perceptions and viewpoints of audiences. The mid-semester conference is an opportunity for current UW20 students to see the work that their peers produced in classes from the previous semester at the moment when the current students begin working on their own research projects. The conference is also a place for students to receive useful, sometimes eye-opening feedback on their own work.
