Apply today: Maroon Institute for Writing Excellence


The Maroon & Write QEP Office is pleased to offer the Maroon Institute for Writing Excellence (MIWE) in June. The MIWE is designed to introduce writing-to-learn strategies for use in the classroom. During this three-week interactive workshop, participants will receive guidance in revising syllabi and creating relevant writing assignments.

Participants will meet 1-3 p.m. Monday-Thursday, June 5-26. All participants will be expected to attend all sessions and complete assigned readings and writings. Participation in the 2014 MIWE requires faculty to incorporate a formal writing assignment into a class during the 2014-2015 academic year and to utilize the Maroon & Write rubric to evaluate the writing. Results from the rubric scores will be incorporated into the overall Maroon & Write project.

The MIWE is open to all full-time faculty members at the rank of instructor and above who are scheduled to teach undergraduate courses during the 2014-2015 year. Registration is limited, and preference will be given to faculty teaching a sophomore- or junior-level course that has not traditionally incorporated a writing assignment.

Additional eligibility requirements and expectations of participation are available on the MIWE application. The application is online at

Applications may be mailed or submitted electronically, but must be received by March 7.
