Center for the Study and Teaching of Writing

The Center for the Study and Teaching of Writing offers comprehensive writing support for students and professional development workshops for faculty. Our goal is to cultivate a community of writers dedicated to sharing and engaging in best writing practices.

Writing Support Services

Writing Support Services provides free writing support and resources for students of all levels and learning styles. Our tutors include Writing Specialists, Regis faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. Through group workshops, learning communities, individual conferences, and 24-7 online support, the Writing Support Services staff helps students develop a strong understanding of writing as both process and product. When we use "writing" as a verb, we are referring to a process that includes pre-writing, developing a topic/thesis, drafting, revising, proofreading, and post-writing. "Writing" as a noun, a product, is the end result of the writing process: a polished essay, a final presentation, a published website. Writing Support Services helps students become confident, capable writers and strong editors of their own work.

Faculty Resources

In addition to supporting students, the Center offers a wide range of professional development workshops on writing and writing pedagogy for all faculty. Our Faculty Development Series provides practical and effective strategies for using writing-to-learn exercises and methods to enhance students’ comprehension of and engagement with course content.

How to Make an Appointment

While appointments can be had on a drop-in basis, depending on the availability of tutors your best bet to get an appointment is to go to Starfish, click on the Services tab, and then click “Make an Appointment” in order to find a time that works well for you.

If you have any questions, or if you need assistance scheduling an appointment, please contact Ben Remillard at benjamin.remillard@regiscollege.edu or in the Carr Room on the second floor of the library.

Additional Support

The Regis Library offers students free access to a variety of electronic databases and information resources. Our librarians (@ ext. 7303) can give you advice on which database is best for your research needs, and they can help you to improve your search techniques. Databases are available 24/7.

Smarthinking

In addition to the Center for the Study and Teaching of Writing, Regis also offers students access to Smarthinking, which provides 24/7 tutoring support for all Regis students across all disciplines. Smarthinking is a free service which may be accessed through Starfish.
