Instructions for Accessing Student Tutoring and Lab Attendance

Early Alert Program

The Early Alert program is designed to advise at-risk students early in the semester. Instructors can download the Early Alert Referral Form and provide to students as needed. Using the form, instructors can recommend services to students such as tutoring, workshops, and software exercises to improve areas of concern. If you have any questions about the program or process, please contact Nicole Blean at

Faculty Workshops

The Writing Center, in coordination with the office of professional development, plans to offer a number of workshops for faculty members. Focusing on issues such as using technology to teach writing, designing effective writing assignments, evaluating and responding to papers, integrating writing into traditionally writing-free courses, designing writing-intensive syllabi, and writing across the curriculum, these workshops typically consist of one or two sessions of 60-90 minute duration. Different workshops will be offered each semester. Writing Center staff is always interested in faculty suggestions for new workshop topics. Please contact Nicole Blean at with you suggestions.

The permanent staff of the Writing Center is also available for individual consultation and conversation on any of these or other writing-related issues. We believe in the collaborative nature of both teaching and writing, and we welcome exchanges of teaching experience, techniques, and strategies. Faculty interested in presenting a workshop alone or in collaboration with staff are invited to contact Nicole Blean at to make arrangements.
