UCC Reports

* * * * * * * *

In November of 2014, over 200 Brandeis faculty and 750 undergraduates completed short online surveys about undergraduate writing.  Please click on the following two links to read summaries of both surveys, including representative comments.  The order of the survey questions has been rearranged in each summary to provide better narrative flow.

Both students and faculty have shared suggestions about how to develop undergraduate writing skills.  We hope that these surveys will begin a discussion in your department and across the university about the teaching of writing.  To access these surveys, click on the links below:
