Writing Support for Your Students


Writing Support

Your students will find our Writing Workshop in 1310 North Quad, and our Peer Writing Center is in G219 Angell Hall, with satellite locations in the Undergraduate Library, Alice Lloyd Hall and the Dudersadt Center (more info on our In-Person Writing Support page). Students can also receive assistance using our OWL system to connect to a peer writing consultant remotely via the web (more info on our Web-Based Writing Support page). Undergraduate multilingual writers have access to multilingual specialists at our Writing Workshop and Peer Writing Center as well as additional language-learning resources (more info on our International Student Support page).

As you encourage your students to use our services this term, we ask you not to require their attendance or offer credit for it. We find that students who come to us of their own accord are more motivated to benefit from the session, and leave with a more productive attitude toward their writing and our services. It is our policy not to provide "proof" of attendance. If you have any questions about this policy, feel free to contact Sweetland's Associate Director, Naomi Silver.

Class Visits

If you would like an instructor from Sweetland to visit your class to describe our services, please e-mail Teri Ford to arrange a visit.

Things to Share with your Students

We have flyers with information about Sweetland resources for undergraduate students, graduate students, and multilingual undergraduate students. These are great for bulletin boards, to hand out, or share online. You can download them using the links below and print them yourself or email us at sweetlandinfo@umich.edu if you'd like us to send you a packet. Additionally, we have bookmarks for undergrads and grads with the same condensed information as the flyers and that list hours and locations of our writing centers each term. Email us at sweetlandinfo@umich.edu if you'd like us to send you a packet of bookmarks.
