Faculty Resources

Faculty may refer students to the Writing Center by assigning them a visit and requesting a purple verification slip as evidence of their visit. It is up to the student to make the appointment and to ask the tutor for a purple slip. The purple slip is completed by the tutor with information on what was accomplished in the session and what assignment was addressed, including faculty name, course, and tutor's name. It is the student's responsibility to turn it in to his/her professor.  If a student meets virtually with a writing tutor, the student must ask the tutor to send a verification email to the professor.

Faculty who would like to request an in-class visit to describe the services of the Writing Center may contact Jason Pratt at 716.286.8075.
