As students and teachers writing in a diverse, global, academic community, the University Writing Program is committed to providing the tools and resources we all need in order to discuss, think about and become agents for diversity and equity. 

Our lives, perspectives and practices are enriched when we actively engage in discourse around complex ideas, whether they pertain to race and ethnicity; gender identity; political stance; sexual orientation; special health needs; age; religion; country of origin; or socio-economic status. 

Through the study of writing cultures, literacy and language practices, we prepare ourselves and our students to better recognize the value of difference and civilly address difficult discussions about diversity and equity.
