ALL UCSD FACULTY
SUBJECT: 2000-01 Pilot Program in Upper Division Writing Instruction
I am pleased to announce the creation of a Pilot Program for Upper Division Writing Instruction. This program was developed in response to suggestions from CEP, Provosts, and faculty that our campus should give more attention to writing at the upper division level across all disciplines and majors. The pilot program will provide additional funds to departments in support of incorporating or enhancing writing instruction in existing upper division courses.
The application deadline is Monday, October 2, 2000. Awards will be
announced by October 31, with funding available January 1, 2001. An
application form appears below, and may be accessed or downloaded from
the Academic Affairs web site:
