SDAWP

The San Diego Area Writing Project (SDAWP) at UC San Diego is dedicated to the improvement of student learning through the effective teaching of writing. The SDAWP believes that writing is critical to learning and a vital tool for communication and should occur regularly in all classes and across the curriculum.

The SDAWP recognizes that writing is a catalyst for the broad expression of ideas and opinions. We consider written expression by participants in our programs to be an opportunity for further dialogue and discussion.
