We encourage faculty members to refer their undergraduate and graduate students to the KU Writing Center. If you recommend it, students will come. We request that you refer individuals rather than requiring every student to attend. Include a statement about the Writing Center in your course syllabi. If you would like us to work with your entire class, please see our FAQs and a list of our services below.
Informational Class Visits
We can attend your class and give a 10-minute presentation that introduces your students to the KU Writing Center, our website, and our services. Instructors of record must be present during class visits as their input is essential. Class Visits are not Workshops. To schedule a visit, click here. If you have any questions, email our Workshop Coordinator, Adam Mills, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage you to include this information about the KU Writing Center in your course syllabi:
At the KU Writing Center, you can work one-on-one with writing consultants trained to talk with you about writing. We welcome students who think they need help with writing as well as those who consider themselves good writers. You can meet face-to-face, receive feedback via e-mail, or schedule a videoconference. Consultants are coaches who work with you on any type of assignment—essays, research papers, reports, presentations---at any point of completeness or incompleteness. We find that students benefit from a visit early in the thinking and writing process. Don’t wait until you are frustrated. To learn more, browse to http://writing.ku.edu. You’ll be glad you did!
