University of Rhode Island Major in Writing and Rhetoric

Nedra Reynolds and Joannah Portman-Daley

Our department’s self-study–required every six years–was produced in 2014-15 for URI’s Academic Program Review Committee, which provided guidelines, institutional reports, and funding for an external reviewer. Our process was hugely valuable because of the collaboration and input from all members of our unit, including per-course instructors and undergraduate majors. This document has been and will continue to be our North Star for the next five years; it captures valuable data and offers both practical and aspirational goals for our future.
