The Writing Program recognizes writing as a means of communication, academic discovery, intellectual awareness, political power, and personal expression. Writing can be improved through participation in a writing process, studying rhetorical strategies, college-level textual and literary analysis, and critically engaging one's own mechanics, logic, organization, and development. The Writing Program maintains Guidelines to align Cisco College courses with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board requirements, Cisco College policies, and best practices for the English discipline.
