Faculty Resources

Most students at Augusta University report learning about the Writing Center from instructors. We appreciate your ongoing support. In return, The Writing Center offers several resources to help you and your students succeed. 

What to expect when you send your students our way 

We offer free, individualized feedback for any Augusta University student on any writing project. The writer works with a trained consultant to define goals for the session. For example, goals might include: 

  • Brainstorming topic ideas
  • Clarifying and organizing ideas
  • Researching, drafting, and revising
  • Improving grammar, punctuation, and usage
  • Citing sources properly
  • And more...

Consultants help students develop strategies to improve their writing. The assistance we provide is intended to foster students' resourcefulness and self-reliance. Each student determines how to use the consultant's advice and makes all decisions regarding his or her writing. We cannot guarantee better grades or perfectly edited papers, nor do we proofread or edit essays for students; rather we encourage students to take an active part in the consultation and becoming more confident writers.

We work with students from all August University colleges and departments. Whether a student is writing a lab report, a resume, a term paper, a statement for an application, or a creative piece, our consultants are happy to help. 

How to make the most of the writing center

Do you plan on requiring or recommending that students use the Writing Center? Reach out to us: 

  1. Email the Director of the Writing Center, Candis Bond (cbond@augusta.edu), with information about the assignment and the number of students expected to visit. The more information the consultants have about expectations, the better they can help your students. Plus, we can chat about the nature and scope of consultations and discuss appointment availability. 
  2. Invite a Writing Center representative to speak in your class for just 5 minutes. This quick spiel will help de-mystify what we do for students and they will better understand what to expect and how to prepare for the consultation. 
  3. Consider hosting an in-class writing workshop. We offer great writing workshops on a number of topics (APA/MLA citation, research writing, peer-reviewing techniques, style and grammar, etc...). Class-specific, customized workshops are also available upon request. This might be the most efficient way to meet student need. Contact Candis Bond to discuss options for workshops.
