Peer Review

The Writing Center in the Academic Commons provides in-class peer reviews that are designed to get students to read, think about, and discuss their work in a small group setting. Writing Center consultants facilitate a discussion with students where they can identify areas of strength and weakness within their work.

We attempt to meet and engage students wherever they are in the writing process. Often times this means:

  • helping students come up with ideas, direction, organizational techniques
  • strengthening thesis statements
  • focusing on other higher order issues while keeping the goals of the assignment on target.

You can Request a Workshop here.

One-on-one and Email Consultations

The Writing Center invites all students, staff, and faculty to use our one-on-one consultations services. This service consists of students coming into the writing center and working one-on-one with writing center consultants. This is a personalized experience designed to give focused feedback to help students in their work. We also offer an email service that allows students to upload their work via our website. The following link provides an overview of our one-on-one and email services.

Embedded Writing Center

Embedded Academic Support is designed to allow Library and Writing Center staff to interact with students as they move through the writing and research process in the classroom and online through in-class workshops, peer-review, online modules, and discussion forums in Canvas. 

Consultants respond to student posts with a focus on the current assignment during their writing and research process. This interaction allows our staff to enter into a discourse with students who may be reluctant to visit the Writing Center or reference desk while also giving them additional direction in their writing process. We communicate with faculty throughout this process in order to recognize where students are in the session/writing process and what goals faculty may have for students in concern to the embedded element.
