The Analytical Writing courses are populated by a diverse student community. We celebrate our students’ differences and are interested in helping our students discover how these differences contribute to their intellectual lives. We also insist that these differences are treated with respect. No one can learn in an environment in which he or she is not comfortable. If you feel that you have been disrespected in the classroom by a peer, alert your instructor. If you believe that an instructor has treated you unfairly, see the director of the program. In turn, if you think you might have inadvertently been disrespectful to a peer, talk it over with your instructor, who can help you rectify your mistake.
