Part of the reason that public land grant universities like UConn were founded was to serve their state and regional communities.

The University Writing Center carries on that spirit of service through our collaborations with Connecticut middle and high schools.

However, the school has developed an approach to writing instruction that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Instead of having one department that includes both literature and writing, MIT has created two completely different programs.

To learn more about that experience, please see this article in Reflections: https://reflectionsjournal.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Starting in 2007 we shifted our emphasis from having UConn students deliver tutoring to HPHS to working with schools to assist them in founding their own faculty-led but peer-driven writing centers.

At that time the Connecticut Writing Project (CWP) became a partner in the project.Not all of the schools marked by pins currently have active writing centers (some, for example, have only attended our conference) but all have played some part of an emerging regional network.The pins represent schools that have attended our annual conference with teachers only.The writing program focuses exclusively on instructing students in creative writing, journalistic composition, digital media, and science writing.The faculty includes scientists, historians, poets, essayists, biographers, novelists, and translators to provide a comprehensive education for students with varying interests and skills.Depending on what type of writing you’re interested in – fiction, journalistic, academic, etc.– choosing the ideal school for you may take some research.Our directors and outreach coordinator meet with prospective partners to plan and set the groundwork for establishing a peer-run center.During the academic year, graduate and undergraduate tutors from UConn’s Writing Center visit the partner school weekly to mentor high school students in how to conduct peer tutoring.As part of our partnership program, we are currently working with Ellington High School to open their writing center.In recent years we have worked with: We extend an invitation to any school that wishes to visit our campus Writing Center.
