Requiring Student Visits

Requiring Student VisitsThe KSU Writing Center asks faculty not to make Writing Center visits mandatory for entire classes. Such requirements stretch the resources of the Center and may limit access for students choosing to visit the Center voluntarily. Additionally, students who visit because “the professor said we had to” may come without the investment necessary to be productive and active in our highly collaborative sessions.

We do offer several options for introducing your classes to the resources offered by the KSU Writing Center:

  • Request a KSU Writing Center classroom visit designed specifically for your writing assignments.
  • Contact to determine which KSU Writing Center workshops might be most useful for your students. Workshops are offered in the Center.
  • Encourage individual students to seek assistance by explaining areas in which you see room for improvement and by emphasizing how important writing is to their success.
