University Writing Program Mission Statement
In serving students, faculty, staff, and the regional community, and in support of CSUMB's distinctive mission, the University Writing Program (UWP) will affirm competence in formal written discourse, promote effective writing for diverse audiences, and deliver services that strengthen the academic achievement of all students, particularly those who are from low income and historically underserved populations.
Writing is a highly complex skill that takes time and extensive experience to develop and, as recent studies point out, cannot be separated fully from the context in which it occurs. The ability to write effectively, to express feelings, report research, reflect critically on complex issues, resolve conflicts, and argue persuasively affects students academically and plays a central role in their personal, professional, and civic success.
