Stetson University Writing Program
Megan O'Neill, Director
Welcome to the Stetson University Writing Program, where the goal is to help students develop into the writers we want Stetson University's graduates to be: thoughtful in consideration of multiple viewpoints, aware of differences and similarities in outlook, grounded in solid research and authentic in voice.
The Writing Program oversees the first-year offerings in the Department of English and supports the university's writing-intensive First Year Seminars and Junior Seminars. By encouraging a writing-rich academic environment for four years of the core curriculum, the Writing Program fosters the development of essential writing skills, including purpose, clarity, focus, disciplinary awareness, and an individual and engaging voice. The Writing Program also supports a wide variety of writing intensive courses whose content areas are enhanced by focusing on various writing strategies and assignments.
To support students in their efforts, the Stetson University Writing Center offers regular hours every week during the fall and spring semesters, Monday through Thursday from noon until 8 p.m., with weekend hours and additional hours during times of need around midterms and finals. This tutoring lab is one of the most popular on campus: tutors offer assistance and guidance during all phases of a writing project. Bring your lab reports, your case studies and your literature analyses! Tutors are available at the duPont-Ball Library; you can also make an appointment.
