The University Writing Program’s mission is to help students become agile writers: people who understand writing as an intellectual practice and a way to make things happen in the world. We pursue this mission through our courses, partnerships across campus, and budding collaborations with the communities of Baltimore City.

In all of our work, we are committed to inclusive pedagogy that invites students and colleagues into a lifelong practice of writing.

The Johns Hopkins University Writing Program: Reintroducing Writing

In this course, we rethink writing in ways that will help students throughout college, their professional career, personal life, and civic responsibilities in a democracy.
