Help with Writing
Students and Faculty are encouraged to utilize the free services provided by the University Center for Excellence in Writing (UCEW).
The UCEW is devoted exclusively to the support and promotion of writing on the Boca Campus for all the members of the FAU community--undergraduate and graduate students, staff, faculty, and visiting scholars. Our Center provides a range of support services, including informed and sensitive readers who help writers become more reflective readers and more self-sufficient crafters of their written work. We will help at any point in the writing process (i.e. brainstorming, drafting, revision) with papers for courses, senior or master theses, dissertations, job applications, applications for graduate school, articles for publication, grant proposals, and other documents. We provide writing aid rather than an editing service. Consequently, consultants will write with, not for writers. This means that consultants may not get to all of a paper's issues, but writers will come away with a fresh perspective on their work and documents that are improved in one or more aspects.
In the future, we hope to provide a range of other services, including supporting computer-facilitated teaching and learning for writing classes and hosting brown-bag discussions, workshops, and presentations by guest speakers for FAU and local communities. The UCEW will eventually serve as the clearinghouse on campus for research in literacy, pedagogy, and computer-facilitated teaching of writing, and writing across the curricula.
We encourage all writers to take advantage of this free service to interact with other writers, gain perspective on their own work, and further develop strategies in reading and writing for all writing projects. Call 561-297-3498 to make an appointment or drop in to see if a consultant is available.
During the next few weeks, University Center for Excellence in Writing Consultants shall visit Gordon Rule classes to inform your students of the services the Center has to offer. If you do not wish to have your classroom visited, please contact Sally Badawi at email@example.com to inform her of your request. If you do not teach a Gordon Rule class and would like a consultant to visit your class, please contact Sally as well.
