This program brings tutors to your class to mentor your students in some aspect of writing, from choosing a topic to revising a draft. We request that faculty not make attending the writing center mandatory for all their students. Having 25 students come to the center over the course of one or two weeks overwhelms the writing center capacity making it difficult for other students to use the service. Please contact the Writing Center Director, Margaret Ervin, to set up a Portable Writing Center session. We need at least two weeks' notice in order to set this up.
Our goal is to help professors run productive in-class workshops on their own in the future. We have been able to help professors who have had past frustrating experiences with in-class peer workshops.
You can get free one-to-one peer tutoring at the University Writing Center. This is an on-demand service available to you as needed, when you need it, at any point during the semester. You can schedule yourself for a tutoring time that works for you. The Writing Center is located in FHG Library, Room 251. For directions, hours, and scheduling see wcupa.edu/writingcenter. Tutorials may be conducted face-to-face or online.
