    The Spelman College Comprehensive Writing Program (CWP) was foundedover thirty years ago by Spelman alumni Dr. Jacqueline Jones Royster. Itspurpose was to improve Writing Across the Curriculum and support Writingin the Disciplines (WAC/WID).

    Currently, hundreds of Spelman students are served by the CWP each year.We provide extensive programming to the college, guided by the principlethat writing is a powerful tool for thinking, inquiry, and communication.Moreover, the CWP continues to serve Writing-Intensive coursesthroughout the college. In particular, the CWP operates two major sites oflanguage learning and writing on campus. They are described, as follows:

    The Spelman College Writing Center

    The Writing Center is the home of the CWP, but it is not the CWP. Itsfunction is to provide students with access to trained peer tutors andmultimedia labs that feature MAC and PC computers, scanners, printers, etc.

    Curricular Initiatives

    Spelman College requires all disciplines to participate in Writing-Intensivecourses. Two campus-wide commitees support this objective: the First-YearWriting and Writing-Intensive Committees. Campus-wide writingworkshops for students are also held throughout the semester to addressthe unique needs of these courses. Faculty Development opportunities suchas this workshop and SpelFolio assessment also strengthen the CWP'scurricular initiatives.

    Other programs and initiatives that are affiliated with the CWP include:SpelFolio, ADW, SWE, The Writing Minor, and Writing as an Area of DeepStudy in the English Major.
