Teaching over 8,000 undergraduate students each year, the PWR is an autonomous unit in the College of Arts and Sciences and is responsible for campus-wide instruction in writing. The program coordinates and oversees all writing curricula and instruction intended to meet college and campus core requirements, including writing courses in specific disciplines and in targeted campus programs, such as CU’s Residential Academic Programs.

Many of our faculty are actively involved within the program, across the campus, and in the Boulder community in innovative curriculum development that enhances the teaching of writing.
