Referring Students to the Richard Wright Center

Faculty,  we encourage you to refer your students to the Richard Wright Center for general writing assistance and for help with refining a specific assignment.

If we are to assist an entire class with a written or speaking assignment, we will need specific information and instructions from you. This information may be communicated to the RWC staff by email, wrightcenter@jsums.edu, or by the student through a written assignment.  Please include the following:

  1.  Your name, email address, and phone number;
  2. Course name and number;
  3. Instructions given to the students for preparing the assignment; and
  4. Any specific instructions you might have for assisting the student(s).

You may contact the RWC Director Kathi Griffin kathi.r.griffin@jsums.edu, Coordinator Summer Graves summer.e.graves@jsums.edu, or 601.979.1777.

Richard Wright Center (RWC): The Richard Wright Center for Writing, Rhetoric, and Research provides an environment for intellectual engagement beyond the classroom. At any stage of the creative and research processes, students may interact with trained tutors using technology to develop written, oral, and visual representations of their ideas for an academic audience.
