The Meadow Brook Writing Project (MBWP) is a partnership between Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, and local schools, including Detroit Public Schools, Macomb County schools, Oakland Community College and the Public School Academies of Oakland University. MBWP offers professional development opportunities for teachers and aims to improve student writing at all levels and in all subjects. The Meadow Brook Writing Project is a site of the National Writing Project and is affiliated with the Urban Sites Network.

MBWP also offers several programs for youth, including our summer camps and a variety of writing workshops. Oakland University’s highest priority in providing exemplary academic, athletic and social programs for youth is protecting the health, safety and welfare of all participants. To achieve this critically important goal, carefully screened and highly trained personnel enforce protocols designed to ensure safe conduct and supportive interaction between youth and program leaders.
