Our Mutual Goals
You are our best advocates
Like you, the Writing Center maintains a student-centered focus. Our mission is not to proofread or to create perfect papers but to help students become effective, independent writers.
Here are some additional ways you can assist us and your student writers:
- Encourage all students to visit the center for individual consultations at any stage of the writing process.
- Include Writing Center information on your syllabus. (A sample paragraph is available here.)
- Schedule a Writing Center orientation for your class. You may schedule a 20 minute orientation in the Writing Center, or a consultant can visit your classroom. To schedule, please fill out our Orientation Request Form here.
- Request consultation reports.If you would like to be informed of your students' progress, remind them to request a report. Due to privacy issues, we cannot send a report to faculty unless the student consents. If a report does not show up in your UNO email within two business days, first check your spam quarantine, then notify the director.
If you have questions or concerns about a Writing Center consultation, contact the Writing Center Director, Travis Adams.
