|The AWE Initiative|
Limestone College has recently initiated a Quality Enhancement Plan entitled Achieving Writing Excellence (AWE).The mission of AWE is to improve students' lives through writing excellence. The focus of the Quality Enhancement Plan is to strengthen students’ writing skills over the next five years, particularly in the Writing in the Disciplines (WID) program, by enhancing instruction in “Writing Intensive” (WI) courses and providing additional academic support through an online Writing Center. Limestone College’s internal assessment activities had demonstrated the need for a focus on improving student writing, and the college community was supportive of the focus for the plan.
All faculty and staff are encouraged to support and participate in this very important initiative. One of the first goals of the plan is to bring awareness to the entire Limestone community. Everyone, especially students, should be cognizant of AWE and its goals.
Strategies will include:
A Quality Enhancement Plan is required by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools as a part of Limestone’s reaffirmation process. More information and further developments about this program will be provided this summer and at the beginning of the fall semester. Questions should be directed to Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Karen Gainey.
