For Your Syllabus
The Writing Center, located on the upper level of the library (HL 213B), is a free resource for student writers. The center is staffed by undergraduate Writing Fellows who have been recommended by Carthage faculty and trained to work with other students on their writing. They can work with you at all stages of the writing process, including understanding the assignment, brainstorming ideas, drafting, revising, and proofreading. For more information and to schedule an appointment, visit carthage.edu/writing-center.

Skills Intensive Program
If you have a student in your class who demonstrates need for on-going writing support or support understanding plagiarism you can submit a recommendation for the Writing Center’s Skills Intensive Program via the Student Outreach System (SOS). Identify “Grades” as one of the concerns and provide a narrative of the writing issues you have observed.
