After the completion of their second University Seminar, students compile final Writing Portfolios and submit them to the SAGES office. The Writing Portfolio documents a student’s development as a writer over their first three SAGES seminars and provides the University with feedback that will be used to enhance the SAGES program.
It includes an essay from each of the three seminars a student has taken part it to this point, 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. While students will not receive specific feedback on their portfolio, SAGES publicly recognizes the best submissions.
The submission guidelines are here: How to Submit a SAGES Writing Portfolio
