To inform your students about the RWC, consider adding the paragraph below to 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, or call 601-979-0694.
