  • Provide constructive feedback on your writing
  • Discuss ways to make your writing more clear and effective
  • Offer guidance with organization
  • Help you identify error patterns and teach you how to correct your errors
  • Be honest and sincere
  • Offer encouragement and support
  • Help you utilize academic technology including Microsoft Office and Blackboard

Writing Center staff will not:

  • Take responsibility for any stage of your paper
  • Proofread or edit a paper for you
  • Type a paper for you
  • Grade your paper or do written evaluations

Dr. Earnest L. Cox, director of the University Writing Center, oversees the center’s operations, strategic direction, and staffing.  He is available by email at elcox@ualr.edu or by phone at 501-916-6454.
