Message from the Associate Dean for Academic Afaairs
Writing anything, a course assignment, blog entry, or comment on an evaluation is an opportunity to create something that did not previously exist. This element of the power of writing may get lost in the sheer number of things we are asked to write each day. Your coursework offers a chance to reclaim some of this power. The writing resources listed below are shared with you to encourage and strengthen your writing goals.
