Writing Assistant Program

Writing assistants are students who are selected to provide several kinds of writing support for students. Those chosen for the writing assistant program are supervised by a faculty member and are trained how to best assist students with all aspects and stages of their writing assignments across the curriculum. Writing assistants have regularly scheduled times for walk-in services in the Access Lab and the Larks Nest, or students may schedule an appointment.
