The Writing & Speaking Center strives to make better writers. We believe our work enhances the college experience by providing a place outside the classroom where writers can receive one-on-one attention and discuss their work. But, as many professors know, our work is not limited to three rooms on the first floor of the library. Use the links below to learn more about all of the ways we can support faculty:

Professors can request to have peer tutors visit classes in order to talk about the Writing & Speaking Center with students. These visits are relatively brief (about 15 minutes) and give an overview of the tutoring process and the services the Center provides. For more information about class visits and how to schedule them, please visit Class Visits.

Resources for Teaching Oral Expression Skills
If you are looking for resources or activities to assist with integrating oral expression skills into your class, please visit our Speaking and Presenting Resources page.
