The Campus Writing Program recognizes contributions to outstanding WI teaching on MU’s campus through two awards: The Win Horner Award for Innovative Writing Intensive Teaching and the Writing Intensive Teaching Excellence Award. The awards are sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies.
Dr. Horner was a nationally known and respected pioneer in “writing across the curriculum” and chaired the Composition Task Force that formed MU’s Campus Writing Program. Preference is given to faculty who demonstrate the same pioneering spirit in their teaching of Writing Intensive courses through developing a new and innovative WI course or implementing new approaches within their teaching.
The Writing Intensive Teaching Excellence Award recognizes outstanding WI teaching that helps achieve the mission of Writing to Learn and Learning to Write within the disciplines.
