Faculty Resources

Faculty play an integral role in the Speaking, Arguing, and Writing (SAW) Program’s efforts to promote excellence in speaking and writing at the college level and beyond. Working closely with faculty across the disciplines helps to strengthen our Program’s mentoring work and outreach effort.

The SAW Program provides support for Mount Holyoke faculty across campus in their work with student speaking and writing:

SAW Classroom Visits: Throughout the semester, the SAW Program offers presentations to students and faculty via classroom visits. To view a list of presentations offered and to submit your request, please click here,

Course mentoring program: Each semester, the SAW Program pairs SAW mentors with faculty partners to provide mentoring support to students in particular writing- and speaking-intensive courses across the disciplines.

Mentor nominations: Faculty members are encouraged to nominate any Mount Holyoke student, including first-year, ESOL, international, and Frances Perkins scholars, to apply to the Program.
