The John S. Knight Institute for Writing in the Disciplines at Cornell University supports writing seminars and writing intensive courses in a broad spectrum of academic disciplines and at all levels of undergraduate education; it also engages in a variety of outreach activities. Through advances in a changing field, it has maintained its reputation as the premier writing program in the country, seeding the idea of teaching writing across disciplines by teaching future professors in every field, from Chemistry to Comparative Literature, Classics to Mathematics, Biology to Development Sociology, Engineering and Ecology, how to teach good writing to their students.
