University Writing Program

Welcome to the University Writing Program (UWP), Bowling Green State University's first-year writing program.

UWP understands writing as a deeply social communicative act that develops through sustained practice. At the same time, our lived experiences inform what, how, and why we write. Research on writing development tells us that growing our confidence as writers involves also developing our confidence as readers and speakers. UWP strives to create inclusive learning spaces both inside and beyond the classroom in which students and faculty work together to explore and practice strategies for impactful writing. When, as a classroom community, faculty and students commit to and negotiate a respectful exchange of ideas, questions, and attempts at writing, we create opportunities to learn.
