Possible Goals

Elon's Writing Excellence Initiative aims to benefit all Elon students, with a special focus on three Student Learning Outcomes.

  1. Writing Expertise. At the time they graduate, all Elon students will possess the expertise to write effectively within and across the many contexts they will encounter in their professions or careers.
  2. Inquiry: At the time they graduate, all Elon students will possess the writing abilities significant to critical thinking and the creation of knowledge, pursued both independently and in collaboration with others.
  3. Engagement and Action: At the time they graduate, all Elon students will possess the writing abilities required to participate effectively in public discourse about local, regional, and global issues.

These outcomes will be elaborated and supplemented as faculty, staff, and student groups across the university imagine ways they can use this initiative and its resources to achieve their own goals and aspirations.

Because writing is a powerful tool for learning, our focus on writing will also increase the knowledge and skills students develop in all aspects of their Elon education. An additional outcome will be creation of a student culture that is even more vibrant intellectually, culturally, and creatively than today.
