The Writing Program exists to strengthen the culture of writing at Dickinson College, where students write at all levels and in every major. In harmony with the Dickinson Dimensions, students learn that writing is both an act that is knowledge-producing and a means to self-making, bridge-building and interconnecting with the world. To support and celebrate the teaching and learning of writing, the Writing Program offers courses that emphasize the writing process and craft, sustains a learning community for writers through the Norman M. Eberly Writing Center, assists faculty in developing engaging and authentic writing-enhanced courses, provides opportunities for writing teachers across the disciplines to improve their pedagogical skills, and recognizes the successes of both student writers and writing teachers.
