About UCWbL September 20, 2010

Grounded in the belief that language in general, and writing specifically, shapes and sustains democratic processes, the members of the University Center for Writing-based Learning community believe writing is fundamental to an individual’s participation in democracy in that writing promotes learning, critical inquiry, self-development, and reflection through continual revision. We are committed to both DePaul’s shared vision to enhance “academic rigor” and DePaul’s mission to promote personalism through appreciation of the “dignity of each individual.” As such, we collaborate with writers from all disciplines, backgrounds, levels of expertise, and roles within the University community. Our goal is to help develop better writers along with better writing. Because we recognize the diversity of our community in terms of not only location but learning styles, we use all media of communication for collaboration. As we interact with individuals within the University Center for Writing-based Learning, the University, academic professions, and our global community, we aim to foster a commitment to teaching, service, and scholarly and creative activities.
