The CWC and Faculty
The CWC is a student resource. We help students learn about writing, the writing process, and revision. While that work often helps support the writing students do in specific classes, the CWC is not a course-based tutoring service.
The CWC asks faculty not to require their classes to visit the writing center nor offer extra-credit or an incentive for a CWC writing conference.
We offer classroom visits as a way for faculty to encourage their classes to use the Center. Students in classes that invite us in tend to use the writing center at higher rates. For more information, visit our classroom presentations page.
We also suggest checking out the resources available on our website, including our collection of handouts on writing-related topics, helpful links to other writing websites, and a series of videos made by CWC staff that you might use in the classroom.
If faculty are interested in specific ways to support writing in their courses, they should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The University Writing Program consults with faculty on teaching writing and teaching with writing.
