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.
Faculty-Staff Days of Writing
Each semester, the KU Writing Center, KU Libraries, and Provost's Office sponsor a Faculty-Staff Day of Writing, an event dedicated to writing quantity and quality. The next Day of Writing is scheduled for Friday, February 12 from 9 AM-4 PM in Watson Library. To register for the event, click here. If you experience any difficulty registering, contact us at (785) 864-2399.
Informational Class Visits
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!
