From the late 1980s through May 2009, the Writing
Across the Curriculum was Tufts' "writing-to-learn"
program that sponsored writing workshops associated with
undergraduate courses in almost every academic
department. The goal of the program was to help students
attain a deeper understanding of course material and to
promote intellectual interactions with instructors and
fellow students. Many of the workshops also explicitly
taught students to write more effectively, both through
instructor comments and peer review.
The Writing Across the Curriculum Program is not
currently active at Tufts, so this web site functions as
an historical archive about the program. Tufts faculty
interested in improving student writing should inquire
