More about the Ubiquitous:

Ubiquitous (and its sister organization, English 290 course Writers’ Guild) is unique among UWM at Washington County student organizations. Thus, the mission and function of Ubiquitous are simultaneously determined by its status as both an organization and as a course, and are fully compliant with university policies and regulations. Further, Ubiquitous shall be directed by an instructor who is in good standing in the English Department and who may be assisted by a consultant/advisor whom s/he hires or otherwise appoints.

As an organization and as a course, Ubiquitous provides students with an opportunity to build their writing and communication skills while working on the student newspaper, the Ubiquitous. Ubiquitous will allow students to expand or develop their skills in research, small group, mass communication, writing, editing, layout, photography, and online experience. Students have the opportunity to gain insight into news management, production, and publication. At the same time, it is hoped that students will enjoy writing articles, whether serious news accounts or humorous entertainment pieces.

Course credit, grades, and extent of participation shall be based on several factors, including, but not limited to, official enrollment in English 290 and quality of work and performance as determined by the instructor.
