The liaison program pairs writing advisors with first-year seminars, to
- Introduce students early in their careers to the resources available in the Center for Writing & Learning (CWL)
- Give faculty an additional resource when teaching first-year seminars
- Provide support for new students to become better college writers
- Promote collaborative learning through peer-revision with experienced writing advisors
Each faculty member who teaches a Seminar in Scholarly Inquiry is offered a writing liaison for that semester, and the faculty member and the liaison work together to determine in what ways the liaison will work with the class. Some resources for faculty working with liaisons are included below.
