about the program

History:

The University of Wisconsin Writing Fellows Program was founded in 1997. It is based on a model initiated at Brown University that is now in place at many campuses across the country, including Michigan, Harvard, Swarthmore, and Penn. Developed under the joint auspices of the Writing Center and the L&S Pathways to Excellence Program, the Writing Fellows Program is funded by the College of Letters and Science. It extends the writing instruction and support provided by the Writing Center and the Writing Across the Curriculum Program and, at the same time, offers an exciting opportunity to involve undergraduates more deeply in the teaching mission of the university.
