Encouraging Writing Center Use

Even advanced students may not be aware of resources to help them improve their writing. Faculty in all disciplines can increase student familiarity with the Writing Center by implementing the following strategies in their courses each semester:

  1. Schedule a visit from a peer Writing Assistant to introduce the Center's services and resources to your class. For asynchronous online courses, email writingcenter@kennesaw.edu for a video introduction.
  2. Include the official Writing Center statement in your course syllabi.
    • KSU Writing Center

      Visiting the KSU Writing Center makes writing for any class easier and more effective. A friendly peer writing assistant will work with you in person or online to help you develop a topic, organize your research, revise and edit drafts, document your sources, and much more. The Writing Center offers specialized support for graduate students and includes the English Language Program (ELP), which provides tutoring in writing, speaking, and reading for individuals whose primary language is not English.

      In addition to 1:1 support, the Writing Center offers weekly workshops; free online writing resources; and book, writing, and D&D clubs. Go to writingcenter.kennesaw.edu to learn more and to schedule an appointment, or visit us in English 219 (K) or Johnson 101 (M).

  3. In your D2L Courses, prominently link to the Writing Center and any of our Resources relevant to your class.
