Fort Lewis College Writing Program

Grounded in the discipline of rhetoric, one of the original liberal arts, the Fort Lewis College Writing Program is dedicated to student success in developing critical thinking and effective reading and writing skills. Our goal is to support students of all backgrounds as they gain fluency in academic and public discourse. We guide students to recognize that knowledge building is the goal of academic work, that ideas are the centerpiece of that work, and that knowledge building occurs through dialogue.
