The Shapiro Center for Writing

The Shapiro Center supports students, faculty, and staff in all their work as writers. Established in 2009 with a gift from John Shapiro ‘74 and Shonni Silverberg ’76, the center brings together academic, creative, and public writing. We host events and visitors, run peer-to-peer mentor and tutor programs, assist faculty with writing instruction, and collaborate with people across campus to foster a vibrant writing community.

We view writing as a powerful tool for learning, creating, and communicating, and as a cornerstone of a liberal arts education, rigorous scholarly endeavor, and a healthy civic life.

Calling all writers!
