The Writing Center provides free assistance to writers from across the University community. Offering a mix of appointment-based and walk-in tutoring appointments, the Writing Center also makes writing resources available to students and teachers on the Kingston campus. Tutoring sessions are 30 minutes long. The Center employs as tutors both undergraduate and graduate students, who work with writers as a complement to their University studies.
The Writing Center is also a research center. While working in the Writing Center, tutors may participate in research studies that add to knowledge about writing center practices. Research studies also provide a means for inquiring into broader problems in writing, rhetoric, and education. Graduate and undergraduate tutors have the opportunity to present at local and national writing center conferences and to publish their reflections and research.
The University of Rhode Island's Writing Center is administered by the University's faculty in Writing & Rhetoric. Since 2006, Dr. Jeremiah Dyehouse has directed the Writing Center. Writing & Rhetoric graduate student, Allana Allik, serves as the Center's 2012-2013 Assistant Director.
