The Office of Writing and Learning Initiatives, a unit of Academic Programs and Planning, supports Cal Poly student learning and achievement by coordinating a variety of programs, services, and resources: academic placement in English, the CSU-mandated Early Start English program for first-time first-year students, free individual and group tutoring, course embedded learning assistance, and academic support workshops intended to ensure optimal educational opportunities for diverse student populations. The Graduation Writing Requirement (GWR) for upper-division and graduate students, including the Writing Proficiency Exam (WPE), are managed and administered by this office.
Our mission is to provide a comprehensive menu of academic resources to support the diverse needs of Cal Poly students.
