The Writing Program of the Department of English has been awarded  the Conference on College Composition and Communication Certificate of Excellence.  The program was lauded for being “at the forefront of both writing research and pedagogical innovation,” for making a strong case for the positive and inextricable connection between research and teaching” and for “its commitment to shared governance, and at every level [to treating] students, teachers, and faculty with respect and care.”    Representatives of the program will receive a certificate at the awards session of the annual CCC convention in Tampa, Florida, in March. For more information about the Certificate of Excellence designation, please see http://www.ncte.org/cccc/awards/writingprogramcert.  The mission of the Writing Program is to provide an “intellectual home for the discipline of rhetoric and composition, including conducting research on writing, preparing graduate students to enter the field, and educating writers at all levels.”
