Faculty Resources

Due to the continued concerns surrounding COVID-19, the office hour guidelines in the Roadmap to Return, and CDC guidelines for healthy operations of student support services, the UWC will continue to remain in an online format until Fall 2021.

Did you know? Faculty can book writing consultations for themselves and require students to obtain a proof-of-visit from us to you?

We will resume in-person tours of the University Writing Center in Fall 2021.

20-minute tours are a scheduled time for you and your students to visit the University Writing Center in person or via Zoom to learn more about our services, what to expect in consulting sessions, and why the Texas State University Writing Center matters.

Tours are a friendly way to introduce students to the concept of a writing center.  When a peer consultant talks to your students, it often demystifies the University Writing Center and takes away any perceived stigma about getting writing assistance.

Tours can take place in person (beginning Fall 2021), in the UWC's Zoom room, or in an instructor's Zoom room. We prefer using our space because doing so provides students with the experience of coming to the UWC, which increases their chances of returning. Please specify your preference in your request. 

Please allow up to 2 business days for confirmation. 

We will resume in-person workshops Fall 2021.
