Writing Center Update in Response to COVID-19

In accordance with the University’s response to COVID-19, the Writing Center will be closed next week (March 16-20) and no tutorials will be available. Please reschedule for the following week.

All tutorials for the rest of the semester will be conducted remotely. We have posted guidelines for remote tutoring.

If you have a standing appointment, please be prepared to work with your tutor the week beginning March 23. Your tutor will be in touch with you.

This is a new situation for all of us. Many tutors haven’t tutored online, so please be patient as we adjust to the technology and demands of distance learning.
