The University’s Writing Center (part of the Learning Resource Center in Franz 120) will begin assisting students from now through finals week, and will be open every day except Saturdays, according to director Cara Hersh, English. Students can learn about the center and locate its online schedule at www.up.edu/lrc/writing/.
Professors who would like to familiarize students with the center and what it has to offer them can do so by e-mailing the hotline at firstname.lastname@example.org. A Writing Center assistant can visit classrooms to give a 5-10 minute presentation. Students can also use the hotline e-mail address t0 make appointments outside established slots if the need arises.
To foster student writing integrity at UP, consider using the Turnitin function through class Moodle pages. Instructions for using this paper-authentication software can be found at http://tinyurl.com/lm88xsj.
All students need to possess a common writing handbook (The Wadsworth Pocket Handbook 6th ed.) since it is required in their two writing-embedded courses. It helps keep the campus on the same page when it comes to grammar, punctuation, citation styles, and basic expectations for essay writing across the University. Faculty who need a desk copy can contact Hersh at 7262 or email@example.com.
