Add a note to your Syllabus
Students are more likely to visit the Writing Center when their professors encourage and normalize the practice. Please share a link to our web site on your syllabus or arrange a short introductory visit from one of our associates. By encouraging all of your students to use the Writing Center, and not just those who seem to be struggling, you reduce the perceived stigma of seeking support, which can help to promote equity.
Request Workshops and Course Support
Would your students benefit from more time to learn and practice skills in class? Schedule a Writing Center workshop - our professional staff can lead workshops on writing, public speaking/presentations, and reading strategies. We will customize each workshop to your course and students. Associates are also available to consult on assignment design, inclusive writing pedagogy and feedback, or writing process activities you can lead yourself, such as peer-review and low-stakes writing. Contact us soon to discuss how the Writing Center can support your students this semester.

Support your Thesis Students
Many thesis students benefit from additional structure and social support. The Writing Center and Library's Thesis Support Team are hosting remote write-ins - focused, quiet time to work on a thesis with peers. The Team may re-introduce in-person write-ins in the near future. Please also encourage your thesis advisees - in any academic discipline - to schedule a writing consultation for their thesis, where they can talk about the writing process, discuss chapter drafts, plan for revision, or learn strategies for overcoming many writing obstacles.
