For Faculty

We invite faculty to send students to the Writing Center for any class writing projects. We also encourage faculty to drop by and see how we conduct consultations during Writing Center hours.

If you would like to visit the Writing Center with your class, it may be possible to arrange for a consultant to meet the class and explain what a typical consultation is like. We can also see about arranging for Dr. Landrum-Geyer or a consultant to visit your class and discuss the Writing Center or other writing concerns. Email the Writing Center (writingcenter@swosu.edu) or Dr. Landrum-Geyer (denise.landrumgeyer@swosu.edu) to make arrangements.

We also encourage you to send over copies of assignments and discuss assignment requirements with Dr. Landrum-Geyer and the Writing Center consultants, so that we may serve you and your students better.

Please keep in mind that Writing Center consultations are considered confidential, so consultants are not at liberty to discuss individual students and their sessions with faculty members. We do offer other options to students who need to show their instructors evidence of attendance; ask Dr. Landrum-Geyer for more information.

Syllabus Statement

Feel free to use the following statement on your course syllabi to inform your students about the Writing Center:

SWOSU Writing Center

The Writing Center is a free service open to all SWOSU students, faculty, and staff who are working on writing-related projects (in or out of class). The writing center conducts both in-person and online tutoring sessions; these sessions are run by trained peer tutors who are able to help writers at any stage of the writing process, from understanding the assignment prompt to brainstorming topic ideas, organizing paragraphs, formulating thesis statements, proofreading later drafts, or other concerns. Please email the Writing Center (writingcenter@swosu.edu) or refer to their website for information about polices and hours of operation: http://www.swosu.edu/academics/writingcenter/index.aspx.
