WAMs (Writing Associate Mentors)

The WAM Program pairs WAs with students in a semester-long, one-on-one relationship focused on the writing process. Given the individualized support the WAM Program offers, each relationship is different. All WAM relationships, however, further the Writing Program's desire to meet the needs of a diverse community of learners and writers, focusing on all stages of the writing process and on writing concepts such as structure, argument, and clarity. 

WAMs can help with:

  • research methods
  • prewriting techniques
  • organizing information
  • developing arguments 
  • revision strategies

Last semester, there were many WAM partnerships. They included work on senior theses, transitions to college writing, and writing for unfamiliar disciplines. Those with questions are encouraged to contact the Writing Program via email.
