For Faculty

Key things for faculty to know about the University Writing Center:

Like the classroom, the UWC is a learning space. We don’t look at a writer’s current project only as an end in itself, but as a means to teach reading and writing strategies students can use throughout their lives. As a result, students won’t leave a consultation with every aspect of their papers “fixed”—but they should leave with new insights about how to revise their work.

How the UWC can support you and your students

The writing center is not just for students; faculty can visit as well.

Another important writing resource for faculty at UCF is the University Writing Center’s sister program, Writing Across the Curriculum.

UCF’s WAC program works with faculty across the university on incorporating writing into disciplinary courses and designing writing assignments that improve learning outcomes for students. So far, faculty from such diverse fields as Chemistry, Nursing, Psychology, Hospitality Management, Computer Science, and History have joined our flagship WAC Fellows program and changed the way their departments look at student writing.

The University Writing Center (UWC) offers writing support to students from first-year to graduate in every discipline. Tutors provide help at every stage of the writing process, including understanding assignments, researching, drafting, revising, incorporating sources, and learning to proofread and edit. The UWC’s purpose is not merely to fix or edit papers, but to teach writing strategies that can be applied to any writing situation. Consultations are available for individuals and small groups. You may schedule a 45-minute appointment by clicking the Success Resources tab on Webcourses, calling the UWC at 407-823-2197, or through the UWC website.
The UWC seeks graduate and undergraduate tutors from all majors. To learn more about becoming a writing tutor, please contact us.
