Puzzled about pronouns? Concerned about clauses? Agitated about agreement?
The English Department offers two specialized departments to assist you with your writing skills.
The University Writing Center UWC is open to students from all programs. This office, located on the third floor of the General Classroom Building, has a staff of professional teachers and graduate assistants who can help you make that psychology paper its absolute best!
“The American college is obliged to supplement the American school. Whatever elementary instruction the schools fail to give, the college must supply.” Harvard University President, Charles W. Eliot 2006
The University Writing Center in GCB 309 is a space where writers and readers meet. Tutors facilitate discussions with the writer instead of dictating “changes” to the writer. Thus, we stress a collaborative model that acknowledges the student’s individual linguistic and cultural backgrounds while emphasizing appropriate dictions and styles for particular modes of writing. While we offer assistance with grammar and mechanics, we support writers at all stages of the writing process—planning, drafting, revising, and editing.
The University Writing Center is directed by Robert Randolph, Jr. The UWC is located in the General Classroom Building, Room 309, and is open Mondays-Thursdays 9-4pm and Fridays 9-11am. You can follow the center on Twitter: @ncat_uwc. To make an appointment, go to the UWC site. If you are not already registered, go to "Click here to register" and follow the instructions. You must use a campus email address to register. Using the login information, access the site and select an available time adjacent to the tutor. Fill in the pop-up form as completely as possible. Save your reservation. A confirmation will be sent to the email address you provided.
In an effort to foster a “culture of writing and reading” at the university, we will offer several programs to advance discussions about writing in the 21st century. Everyone is encouraged to participate: students, faculty, staff, and the community. The popular "Tuesdays at 2" series is continuing. All seminars are held at 2 p.m. in A-309, GCB. For more information, please stop by the UWC, call 336-334-7764, or email email@example.com.
