Tutoring Writing in the Disciplines (TWID) is a discipline-based peer writing tutoring program. Department-based peer writing tutors, trained by the WID Director in tutoring practices, provide writing support to students in all courses within a discipline. Initially funded by CAS and a grant provided by the Shipley Center (formerly known as the Digital Education Incubator), TWID is now supported in part by a gift from Jennifer Simpson (CAS 2000).
