Center for Writing helps students with the writing process

From the Center for Writing

Faculty: Please announce to your students that the UST Center for Writing, located in Room 361, John R. Roach Center for the Liberal Arts, is open for the semester.

Hours are:

  • 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays
  • 9 a.m. - noon Fridays
  • 6-9 p.m. Sundays in the O'Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center

The Center for Writing provides important assistance to your students as they write for your courses. Our peer writing consultants provide free one-to-one individualized conferences for students. Please tell your students that the Center for Writing is for all writers at all levels of expertise and experience.

Our staff of education, biology, English, business and history majors (among others) provide insightful responses and probing questions for students at any stage of the writing process. The consultants help with understanding an assignment, researching a topic, reading assigned texts, and identifying rhetorical issues unique to different disciplines.

Ask students to access the Center for Writing Web site, where they can find our favorite links to information on research, documenting sources and the writing process. They can also “Ask a Consultant” and submit drafts in process.

On our Web site, faculty also will find information on how we work, how to encourage students to come to the center, and how to incorporate the center into courses.

Call the center at (651) 962-5601 or, for more information, contact Dr. Susan Callaway, director, (651) 962-5602.
