|Campus Writing Resources|
Here is a list of some of the key writing support services available on campus for faculty and students.
Student Learning Center
The Student Learning Center offers drop in and by-appointment tutoring in writing for all undergraduate courses. Special services are offered for non-native speakers of English. If you have a student who needs writing help that you cannot provide, this is the place to start.
Disabled Students' Program
DSP staff recommend academic accommodations so that students have a chance to learn and to demonstrate what they have learned in classes. The program provides many support services for students, and it publishes a helpful booklet for faculty, Teaching Students with Disabilities.
Academic Programs for Student-Athletes
This program provides study groups and individual tutoring for student-athletes in a range of subjects, including writing.
Teaching Library staff will arrange for group tours, drop-in classes, and course-integrated introductions to the library, covering conducting research and seeking information in the library, for individual classes and programs.
College Writing Programs
CWP offers a range of writing courses, from those that fulfill the R&C requirement to those in advanced composition. CWP trains GSIs across campus to teach writing, and houses a library of writing resources.
Encouraging Student Writing
This booklet is geared specifically for UCB instructors who assign writing in their courses, but who do not teach writing classes. It provides information on how to help students improve their writing and contains a series of "Tip Sheets" on writing for students, which may be duplicated and distributed. You can find Encouraging Student Writing online or you can request bound copies.
Berkeley On-Line Writing Lab (OWL)
This online facility offers students and instructors writing tips, grammar guides, bibliographies, and links to writing resources.
