Writing Center Information for Instructors
The Writing Center invites instructors to inquire about involving us in their course to integrate writing and peer collaboration.
Presentations and In-Class Workshops
We can visit your class to provide basic information about the Writing Center or facilitate an interactive workshop on a specific writing topic relevant to your assignment and students:
- The Thesis Statement
- Citation Basics (MLA, APA, Chicago)
- Evaluating and Incorporating Sources
- Getting Started: Developing a Plan
- Writing the Personal Statement for Graduate or Professional School
- Introduction to Peer Review
We can individualize the presentation for your class level and assignment. We are also open to collaborating with you on alternate topics.

Refer Individual Students to the Writing Center
Please positively encourage all students to visit the Writing Center—remind them that we are a great resource for all students and not a punishment. When you refer students, give them the Writing Center's website so they can make an appointment: bellarmine.edu/writingcenter. Ensure that students know how to make an appointment and where to find the Writing Center (ARC, Library B-level).
