Faculty Services

Writing Center Team Picture

The Writing Center is dedicated to assisting all faculty in their efforts to elicit the best writing from their students. If we are to achieve our goal of being able to assist all students in all disciplines, we must work closely with the instructors who know those students best. If you would like to use our services, or if you have any suggestions for resources beyond those available on our website, please contact us. We welcome your comments and suggestions. We also host a listserv for faculty who are interested in learning more about our services. Send an email to writingcenter@sjsu.edu with a request to add your name to our list. You'll then receive frequent updates. All faculty are welcome to join.

House Calls and Workshops

Our writing tutors can visit your classroom and present information about our services (a "House Call") and/or facilitate any of our one-hour workshops on various writing topics.

Writing Assignment Review Service

Faculty are invited to submit their writing assignments/prompts for review by Writing Center tutors, who will read your assignment from a student's point of view and provide feedback you can use in whatever way you see fit.

Course-Embedded Tutors

If you are a faculty member teaching a writing-intensive course, you can apply for a course-embedded tutor. An embedded tutor is dedicated for three hours per week to supporting you and your students in one of your courses.

Syllabus Statement

To inform your students about the Writing Center and the services that we offer, please use our syllabus statement on your course syllabi and within your Canvas course. 

Teaching Resources

From handouts to videos, we offer numerous free resources--created by our expert writing tutors--that you can use in the classroom. 

Required Services Statement

We greatly appreciate the support of professors across campus in promoting the Writing Center to students; however, we have limited resources, and unfortunately, we cannot support required use of our services. We also request that you do not incentivize your students to use our tutoring services (e.g., in the form of students earning points or extra credit for having a tutoring session). For more information, please read our full statement on this topic.
