Who We Are

The Writing Hub is one of six inter-connected units within the Teaching + Learning Commons. The Commons is a university-wide resource that supports and facilitates excellence in teaching and learning through integration, connection, and ongoing assessment of initiatives leading to an engaged and inclusive educational environment.

Toward this mission, the Writing Hub promotes faculty and student success through programs, resources, and writing-related expertise that connect writing to deeper learning, enhanced student engagement, and discovery. 

Mission

The Writing Hub provides expertise and infrastructure to support UC San Diego students and faculty as writers, and as educators using writing in their classrooms and research groups.

Writing is more than a skill for communication—it is a thinking process that nurtures deep insights and discoveries. Through an innovative suite of services, a staff of 60 highly-trained undergraduate and graduate student writing consultants, and 5 professional staff members, the Writing Hub supports UCSD students, and the educators who teach them, as they grow into writers and thinkers capable of shaping their worlds.

Vision

The Writing Hub aims to create a thriving ecosystem for writing at UCSD, one that engages undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty in writing as a method for thinking and learning.

We believe in writing as a mechanism for deep discovery, enhanced learning, and joyful exploration. Our goal is to help students and educators tap into this power. For undergraduates, this entails supporting students as they learn from the writing process and engage in effective problem solving for new writing tasks. For graduate students, this means empowering students to leverage writing as a tool for intellectual growth and professional success. We support all of the above by working with faculty and departments to cultivate pedagogies that connect writing to learning and student success.
