Class Visits

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

If you teach classes remotely, we offer class visits 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.

Request a class visit or workshop here.

You may also send your request Dr. Tatiana Glushko, tatiana.glushko@jsums.edu.
