UWP Events

UWP Events Calendar

Below is a list of UWP events by quarter, which are primarily for UW Tacoma faculty. Each entry details the event's primary audience (though not limited to); a bit of information on the event with any helpful links; the place, time, and date of the event; and how many people are expected to attend. If you are looking for the Symposium on Writing lectures and faculty workshops, those events are also located on the symposium page.

If you are non-UW Tacoma faculty, but wish to attend, please contact the University Writing Program by email so we can expect you. Others are welcome to most events. 

All events, meetings, or workshops are open to the public, unless noted.
