This page is for students who matriculated before Fall 2023. For students who matriculate in Fall 2023 and after, the UGER Experience Portfolio replaces the SAGES Writing Portfolio as the graduation requirement.
After the completion of their second University Seminar, undergraduate students compile a final Writing Portfolio, documenting their development as writers over their first three SAGES seminars. The Portfolio includes an essay from each of the three seminars a student has taken part in up to this point in their careers, as well as a reflective essay. Each year, SAGES convenes a committee of faculty from several schools within the university to read and assess the portfolios to provide valuable feedback about our seminar curriculum and writing instruction.
Each semester, the Writing Program offers workshops to support writers as they compile and reflect on their writing. For dates/times, please see: Events/News
