The University Writing Center Wants to Partner with You!

We support our students best when we are in conversation with those teaching in the classroom. We can work with you to plan and design assignments and prompts, develop best practices for giving feedback on writing or other kinds of texts, and meet your instructional needs. 

If you would like to schedule an instructional consultation or a class presentation, please email us at UWC@baylor.edu. Please submit your requests at least one week in advance of the presentation date. 

What We Can Provide

  • Syllabus Statements: The UWC has several templates of syllabus statements about the UWC that you can adapt for your courses. Click here for the syllabus statements
  • Class Presentations: Our standard class presentation takes about 10 minutes and gives a brief who, what, when, where, how, and why of the UWC. We also include a mini-mock tutoring session so that students can see in person what we do here.
  • Assignment Design Consultations: Our staff is happy to work with you in designing your writing assignments.
  • Graduate Teaching Assistant Consultations: We will work with your graduate assistants to help them most effectively respond to your students’ writing.
  • Writing Studios: In a writing studio, students enrolled in a class meet regularly outside of the classroom space in small groups to actively work together on their research and writing. A UWC consultant facilitates these groups free of charge to you.
  • Workshops: We have several writing workshops available upon request that can be modified to meet your specific course needs. Current workshop topics include the following:
    • Writing Thesis Statements
    • Using Evidence in Your Writing
    • Developing a Research Project
    • Getting the Most out of Peer Review
    • How to Cite and Document Sources (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.)
    • Strategies for Getting Started
    • Technical Writing Basics
