Writing Committee

William & Mary values good writing as a reflection of clear thinking and as a tool for lifelong learning. As such, it is both primary and essential to the goals of a liberal education. Writing enhances learning, thus the William & Mary faculty are committed to promoting writing and the teaching of writing within all academic disciplines.

The Writing Committee is an interdisciplinary committee composed of three (3) faculty members from English; three (3) from outside the English Department; two (2) ex officio members, the Chair of the English Department and the Dean for Educational Policy; and the Director of the Writing Resources Center, who serves as Chair.
