University of Missouri Campus Writing Program

Bonnie Selting and Amy Lannin

Our Writing Intensive Guidelines and course Proposal/Update forms are essential to MU’s Campus Writing Program. The Guidelines can be found through the university website ( by typing “writing intensive” into the search bar. These Guidelines have been the bulwark of this Writing Program since its inception. They have been revised through recent years to accommodate for digitalization of writing assignments, but their original purpose has remained: to emphasize writing as a prime teaching tool. The guidelines are also used by the Campus Writing Board to review course Proposals and Updates.  A sample form can also be found on the University of Missouri’s CWP website under Teaching Resources.
