Just as we've come to rely on Wikipedia for quick and accurate information, Wikipedia relies on subject-matter experts to ensure it remains reliable, up-to-date, and as complete and inclusive as possible.

Help improve the world's largest online encyclopedia this Fall by running a Wikipedia assignment. Energize your students by having them do work with real-world impact. Tackle digital literacy and misinformation head-on and ensure that Wikipedia has the most up-to-date content in your field of expertise.

Join the 3000 students who have already added over two million words to Wikipedia in a variety of linguistics-related fields this fall.

The program is open to all post-secondary institutions in the U.S. and Canada, and there are no fees to run a Wikipedia assignment. We provide robust support so faculty and students learn how to navigate Wikipedia and make lasting contributions.
