Valuing writing, research, design, and presentation skills

NAU’s Interdisciplinary Writing Program (IWP) is committed to the intellectual growth and development of students through providing resources and experiences that encourage writers to explore, develop, research, design, and present their work inside and outside of the academic classroom. The IWP focuses on building a campus community that highlights the value of effective communication in higher education by working with departments across campus, offering writing, research, and design bootcamps, conducting student surveys on academic writing, and sponsoring the Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Research Symposium on The Rhetoric of Video Gaming.
