Class Visits

Invite us to your class – to inform students about RWC and its resources and/or to facilitate a workshop on a topic you would like for your students. ​See suggested topics below.

We also offer course visits to online classes via Canvas, Zoom, or Google Hangouts. In a synchronous live meeting, a RWC staff member will provide information on RWC resources, facilitate a workshop on a topic requested by the course instructor, and answer questions.

For Your Syllabus – Paragraph about RWC

To inform your students about the RWC, please include the paragraph below in your syllabus. We also encourage you to read our blog post What We Do and Why.

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. Location: H. T. Sampson Library, 1st floor. For hours, workshops, writing resources, or to make an appointment, go to www.jsums.edu/wrightcenter, or call 601-979-0694.
