Established in 2016, the West Point Writing Program supports Cadets, faculty, and select staff as they pursue the study of writing and communication across the curriculum, in every discipline and department, at the United States Military Academy. The overarching goal of the West Point Writing Program is to cultivate institutional awareness of the writing process and effective writing practices, and especially to provide Cadets with continuity and coherence in their education so that all graduates are thoughtful, agile, and clear communicators who are prepared to answer the various demands of their professional environments and succeed as Army officers.
