Dear Members of the Faculty:
You’re invited to request a classroom visit and/or an in-class workshop from the Writing Center this spring! Last semester, we led over 80 combined classroom visits and in-class workshops, introducing our services to students ranging from undergrads in CICs and honors business courses to grad students in management, fundraising, and psychology.
In a classroom visit, a Writing Center consultant will present a 10-15 minute overview that introduces our mission, describes our services, and helps students determine how they can make the best use of the Writing Center’s resources. We'll also address practical concerns, such as where to find us and how to use our online scheduler to make appointments, and answer any questions about the Center. You can request a visit by using this form.
In an in-class workshop, an experienced, professional Writing Center consultant will present one of our 25 workshops on a wide variety of writing, reading, research, interpretation, and analysis skills. Our workshops typically last about 75 minutes, and you can find descriptions and lesson plans on our website.
To ensure the success of the workshops for all involved, we require that participating faculty:
- request in-class workshops at least two weeks prior to the desired workshop date(s), whenever possible.
- meet with the consultant assigned to teach your workshop at least one week in advance of the class session. In this meeting, our consultant can learn more about your course, and you can collaborate to ensure the workshop meets your students’ needs.
- be present for the entirety of the workshop when it is delivered in-class.
If you’re interested in requesting one or more workshops, please review descriptions and lesson plans, and then use this link to submit a request. We’ll respond to you soon to discuss your needs, and to schedule your in-class workshop and your pre-workshop consultation.
Please note that while we do our best to fulfill all requests, we cannot guarantee workshop availability for your class, particularly if your course meets outside of regular Writing Center hours (M-Th 9-8, F 9-3, Sa 10-4). Requesting your in-class workshop with as much advance notice as possible and providing us with flexible pre-meeting times will help us accommodate your request.
Please feel free to be in touch for any reason! And thank you for your partnership over the years—we’re excited to continue working with you.
