Tips for Instructors Referring Students to the Writing Center:

While we appreciate that faculty recommend students visit the Writing Center, research indicates that students who are required to come (either because their work is deemed “remedial” or because there is a blanket course requirement) tend to engage less with consultants and fail to reap the benefits of a session. If possible, review student writing and give some feedback with your specific areas of concern prior to recommending that the student visit the Writing Center. Feel free to contact the Writing Center Director, Dr. Michael Brittain, at if you have any questions or concerns.
