Meet the Writing Consultants

The University of Houston Writing Center provides the UH community with resources for discipline-specific writing practice, instruction, and evaluation through the Writing in the Disciplines (WID) program, advancing the University's goal of raising writing standards while improving the quantity, caliber, and engagement of student learning. Just as intellectual demands change by discipline, the conventions, forms, and expectations of writing also change. By supporting students in the writing process within their discipline, WID initiatives lead students to grasp intellectual material and engage themselves in articulating effective solutions to discipline-specific problems. Aimed at re-establishing the connection between writing and content, the WID program has furthered initiatives at every academic level, each semester providing thousands of students from 11 colleges with long-term support in developing the tools necessary to succeed in their academic and professional careers.
