The University Writing Center (UWC) provides writing support through multiple means to all members of the EMU community—undergraduate and graduate students, international students, post-baccalaureate students and faculty. Students and faculty can receive one-on-one support at the main UWC location in 115 Halle Library, or at one of the satellite locations.
One-on-one support is also available in the Academic Projects Center (APC) in 116 Halle Library, and at our satellite locations in Marshall, Owen, Pray-Harrold, and Sill (as of Fall 2013).
Additionally, writing support provided electronically is available to students in select programs. Click here to see if your program is included and to access the form for this service.
The UWC offers a series of workshops to help students learn and practice writing strategies that are applicable across disciplines. There are workshops to support every stage of the writing process from organizing to revision.
Workshops can help fill in gaps in your knowledge, or complement an existing writing class you are taking. For example, if you find yourself needing to write a research paper in your business class, there are individual workshops that can help you learn how to incorporate evidence, cite your sources in APA, make sure you are correctly using commas, and revise your paper. Workshops can be taken as a series to help better develop yourself as a writer, or individually to learn about one strategy or technique, such as just how to use APA or MLA citations and formatting.
Workshops are run by one of our writing consultants and typically last 45 minutes to an hour. They are held in the University Writing Center in 115 Halle Library. You can view workshop descriptions here, or register for a workshop now. Additionally, we offer Biology writing workshops that have been developed in coordination with the Biology department for students in those classes.
Targeted workshops can be developed and delivered to specific classes. These workshops can be delivered in your classroom. Additionally, sets of workshops can be adapted and delivered to students in particular programs and disciplines. The UWC Director and UWC consultants meet with faculty to tailor workshops to course or student needs.
