Students must complete the University Writing Requirement in order to graduate.
Eastern Oregon University is strongly committed to the view that writing aids in learning and that writing skills are key to professional success. The University Writing Requirement (UWR) requires that students receive attention to writing throughout their studies and that students demonstrate their mastery of discipline-specific writing. To this end, all students must complete the following:
Outcomes for lower-division UWR Writing Intensive Courses:
Outcomes for Upper Division UWR Writing Intensive Courses:
Students must complete all UWR writing intensive courses with a C- or better, and UWR writing intensive courses must allocate at least 30% of the overall grade to formal writing assignments, with at least 25% of the overall grade based on evaluation of individually written papers that have been revised after feedback.
UWR writing intensive courses will address punctuation, grammar, and disciplinary documentation style, but they are primarily intended to be discipline courses which use writing tasks to help students learn the material and learn how to write effectively in the discipline.
