The University Writing Commons works with you at any stage of the writing process. We are located in 3 different sites for easy access to writing support — Health & Learning Center, Inclusion and Multicultural Services, and Cline Library.

Faculty Notes

We are very happy to work with your students in the UWC. Successful sessions depend on student willingness to take an active role in shaping their documents through revision and editing feedback. Students who are required to attend our sessions or come for extra credit are often disinterested and do not benefit from the UWC. Therefore, we will not sign attendance verifications. 

We also provide feedback on writing assignments, writing expectations in course descriptions, and in-class writing activities from a student perspective. Contact us and make an appointment for a session in the Commons!
