The WID Program has two main responsibilities:
  1. To certify and assess all WID courses 
  2. To help AUB faculty better teach writing and use writing in their classes to enhance student learning
​To do this, the WID Program staff offers one-on-one consultations and university-wide workshops with faculty to discuss assignments, prompts, grading criteria, and course material for any class. Refer to the WID Program website​​ or send an email to​ for more information about the WID Program or to schedule a consultation to discuss any or all of the following:

  • Help students write better
