Helping Your Students Use the Writing Center

The Writing Center works with students throughout campus on writing assignments that span the curriculum. We focus on teaching students the skills that enable them to improve their written communication throughout all stages and levels of the writing process. Our services are free to students.

Because we are a tutorial service dedicated to improving the written skills of students, we do not edit, proof, or "check over" papers and correct them—instead, we teach students to master these skills.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us (294-3680) or e-mail us at wctr@shsu.edu

Helping You with Your Writing

The Writing Center works with faculty across campus on manuscripts, grant proposals, and other professional writing. The staff will copy-edit your work, discuss writing strategies with you, and answer questions about grammar and documentation.

Helping You with Your Students' Writing

The Writing Center staff will help you create writing assignments for your students and discuss ways to help you evaluate writing more effectively and efficiently.

The following websites also provide information about creating effective writing assignments across the curriculum:

Creating Effective Writing Assignments (MIT University)

Dealing with Plagiarism (Colorado State University)


The Writing Center also provides books on faculty development, ways to incorporate writing into your syllabus, and assessment techniques.

We offer a number of handouts and links to help students and teachers. You are free to link to these handouts, print them out, and distribute them to your classes. Use the Handouts link to find them.
