Consultations about Writing and Speaking Instruction
Our professional associates are available for individual consultations to discuss approaches to assignment design, writing and public speaking instruction, and effective feedback and commenting. We offer a perspective on teaching that complements disciplinary expertise and classroom experience. Where appropriate, we also offer collaborative consultations with our partners in other academic support departments.

The Writing Retreat for Faculty and Staff
The Writing Center supports faculty and staff in their own writing projects by offering occasional writing retreats during academic breaks. Our retreats are designed to encourage a regular writing practice, to emphasize healthy and sustainable approaches to productive writing, and to support a community of writers at the College.
First Year Seminar Liaisons
The Writing Center offers a liaison program to better connect writing associates with the faculty of First Year Seminars. Liaisons can introduce the Writing Center to students, provide or arrange workshops and assignment design consultations, and to improve two-way communications between the Writing Center and the faculty in our support of first year students’ writing.
