For Faculty

Faculty Resources

The Writing Center offers a number of specialized services to faculty members, from collaborating with you to assist your students on specific projects to helping you fine tune your own course and research materials.

Writing Center tutors are FERPA trained and ready to assist your students in whatever capacity they may need.

Please make sure your students know your requirements about attendance in the Writing Center, our policy against paper drop-offs, and the need to make an appointment ahead of time. Often, students will email us at the last minute asking us to look over a copy of their paper via email so they can receive credit, even if the Writing Center is closed. This violates our editing policy and our tutors cannot work outside of their scheduled hours.

Student Privacy and Plagiarism

Our tutors are student-employees and are not qualified to assess for plagiarism. They cannot discuss a student’s work with an instructor outside of the scope of the Client Report Form without the student’s explicit permission. If a tutor suspects that a client may be plagiarizing, those concerns are brought to the attention of the Writing Center Director.

If you suspect one of your student’s may be plagiarizing and they have met with our tutors, please contact the Writing Center Director.
