Eloquentia Perfecta:  Writing

Eloquentia Perfecta—writing well for the good of others—has been at the heart of a Jesuit education since 1599. 

It's no wonder, then, that support for writing is a key element in the Always Forward initiative. 

The Challenge

High school students nationwide are underperforming in writing competencies. At Le Moyne, we want to enable all students to write at the highest levels. We know that students become better writers when they participate in smaller classes, receive individual attention, and have multiple opportunities to write at all levels of the curriculum. Le Moyne commits itself to providing the instructional and programmatic resources necessary for students to cultivate their critical and creative reading, thinking, and writing skills. 

Extending Intellectual Life: The Writing Center

Through the Always Forward campaign and the endowments that will be created to name our writing center and our director, Le Moyne's generous donors will infuse new resources into our campus writing culture. We will ensure that an innovative, dedicated writing center director works with students, faculty, and staff to improve student learning outcomes throughout the College and that a cadre of student peer writing tutors will work with fellow Dolphins. 

Writing well for the good of others—this is at the heart of Le Moyne's Jesuit mission.
