Welcome!

Whether you are an incoming or returning international, intercultural, or otherwise interested student, the modules and tutorials on this site can help you develop strategies to write, learn, and participate more fully in courses at Duke. Or perhaps the materials here will help you develop such strategies for other contexts you are writing or communicating  in.

Cultural, linguistic, and geographic contexts are deeply connected to conventions and expectations surrounding academic writing, academic integrity, and class participation. Our aim in the Thompson Writing Program is to empower all writers to contribute their ideas to ongoing conversations and have the opportunity to advance knowledge. Part of this endeavor involves supporting those who are newer to the context of U.S. academic writing, academic integrity, and class participation practices.

At any point during your Duke academic journey or other writing adventures, you can return here to the DukeWrites Enrichment Suite to refresh your skills and knowledge.
