For Faculty

Welcome, faculty!

The Writing Center is eager to assist you and your students. Throughout this site, you will find links to our many student resources and services, including professional tutoring and editing and interactive online tools. The getting started page contains links and an introductory video to orient your students to everything the Writing Center has to offer.

In addition to student services, we offer a range of resources to support you in your work with student writing. See the links to your left for useful information and classroom resources. We can also provide you with other, more personalized services as listed below.

To pursue any of these opportunities, contact Manager of Program Outreach and Faculty Support Amber Cook at amber.cook@waldenu.edu. We look forward to working with you and your students!

Writing Center Data

We are committed to privacy in our student interactions, so we cannot offer detailed information about individual student use of the Writing Center. We can, however, discuss college or program trends, such as numbers of students who receive paper reviews or attend webinars, or information about Form and Style review quality patterns.

On-Demand Webinars

Donít see the webinar you want on our calendar? A Writing Center staff member can provide a webinar or Q&A session for groups of students or faculty.

Review of Classroom Materials

Course leads who are part of revisions to courses can contact the Writing Center for advice on APA or writing details included in those revisions. Instructors who use their own sample papers or classroom aids can also consult us for clarifications on those areas.

Resources for Specific Students

If you are working with a student with particular writing challenges and would like advice about the best resources for that student, we are happy to put together recommendations for you.

Fill out this brief form (https://walden.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2a7NDeIk1CCXqnP) with specifics, and we will send you a package of resources for your student.

Developmental Editing for Capstone Students

For students who are working on their dissertation or professional doctorate capstone, developmental editing can help. This service, which is intended to help students whose writing skills are interfering with their progress, involves several weeks of intensive one-on-one work with one of our dissertation editors. The service is available by faculty referral only. See the Research Faculty area of the WC Faculty Toolbox for information and an application.
