Encourage Your Students to Visit the Miller Writing Center
The Miller Writing Center is here to help students become better writers. You can help your students utilize this resource in several ways:
- Have information about the MWC in your syllabus: If you choose to do so, here’s a statement you can include:
- Writing Center: The Miller Writing Center provides free support on any writing you are doing while at Auburn, whether for a course or not. Trained consultants are available to talk with you as you plan, draft, and revise your writing. Please check the Miller Writing Center Web site (www.auburn.edu/writingcenter) for locations, hours, and information about scheduling appointments. If you have questions about the Miller Writing Center, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 334–844–7475.
- Have a tutor introduce the MWC to your class: A tutor can come and give a brief (5–10 minute) overview of our services and how your students can best make use of this resource. You can schedule a tutor visit at any point in the semester.
- Schedule an in-class writing workshop: Workshops range from very specific writing issues—grammar, punctuation, thesis statements, etc.—to more general issues like APA/MLA citation, organization, plagiarism, planning writing, and peer response. All workshops can be crafted to meet your discipline’s needs, your students’ needs, and to fit within your class time.
Schedule a Class Visit!
We are happy to send a representative from our staff—often one of the writing consultants—to your class to give a brief introduction to the writing center.
If you have questions about any of our student services or about how we might help students from your courses more specifically, please email James Truman, director of the MWC, at either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 334–844–7475.
