Writing plays an important role in the academic and professional success of each UL Lafayette student—whether he or she is in the sciences, business, education, or liberal arts. It is not enough for a student to be a writer, he or she must to be the best possible writer in his or her discipline of study and in his or her career after college. In my research, I have explored the possibility of maximizing writing abilities of students by proposing what I call the genre method for knowledge transfer, where the Writing Center collects and stores, in a database, writing samples from all academic levels and disciplines of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. The genre and knowledge transfer method is an avenue for any student of the University to study writing samples that are unique to his or her area of study and to use such knowledge in relevant writing situations in order to develop the individual student’s writing potentials to the fullest.
