I'm a new student at RRU. What should I know about the Writing Centre?
Welcome to RRU, and we're looking forward to working with you! The Writing Centre is staffed by Theresa Bell, Jonathan Faerber, and Jamaal Cox (on leave until January 2018).
Writing is a lifelong learning skill that is essential to scholarly and professional communication. The Writing Centre helps RRU students become skillful writers by providing assistance face-to-face, by phone, and online for all types of academic writing (e.g., course assignment, major project, thesis/dissertation, scholarly communication). Students can receive timely assistance at all stages of writing through one-on-one support and online resources. We do not proofread or edit students’ work; instead, we help students build skills and confidence by empowering their development as writers. For more information regarding the support available through the Writing Centre, including descriptions of one-on-one appointments and links to the online appointment booking system, please visit Writing Centre Services.
If you have any questions regarding the Writing Centre's services or if we can provide assistance, please submit a private question to the Writing Centre via the WriteAnswers contact form. You’ll receive a private reply at our earliest opportunity, which is usually within one business day. We're open Monday-Saturday, and for our specific hours, location, and other contact information, please visit the Writing Centre’s home page.
