Faculty Resources

The Center for Writing and Communication (CWC) provides a variety of services that can be beneficial for your students. View our Faculty Outreach Flyer that explains how we can help you help your students. Feel free to use this resource as you wish.

Confirmation of Student Appointments

If you are requiring your students to attend appointments at the CWC, or if you are offering them extra credit, you can verify that they have completed an appointment using your Navigate portal:

1. Go to MyUCA and click on the “Navigate for Staff” link
2. Make sure you are on your “Professor Home” screen. If you are, you should be able to see both a list of your courses and a list of your students for whichever term you choose.
3. Click on a student’s name.
4. When it takes you to that student’s page, choose the “History” tab from the menu bar.
5. Scroll down, and it will show you the tutoring appointments that student has had.
6. Click on the arrow next to “Tutoring Appointment” to view the report for that appointment.


Class Visits, Class Tours, & Faculty Appointments for Tutoring

CWC tutors can visit your classes to give a 5-10 minute talk about the ways students can use CWC services to help them improve their writing. Also, your class can visit the CWC for a tour and explanation of available services. Call 450-5123 or make an appointment through Navigate to set up a time.

In addition, our tutors regularly work with faculty on dissertation projects, books and book chapters, and other projects. Feel free to make an appointment with one of our tutors for your own writing/speaking projects.

To schedule an appointment through Navigate, please follow this procedure:

1. Go to MyUCA and click on the “Navigate for Staff” link.
2. Under “Quick Links,” click on “Schedule a General Event.”
3. Fill out the form as follows:
    a. Care Unit –>Tutoring
    b. Location –>Center for Writing & Communication
    c. Service –>choose the service you’d like
 **Note: If you have trouble scheduling a class tour or visit, go under your availabilities menu (under “Choose a Time to Meet”) and set your availability to “Unlock times with conflicts.”


Virtual Workshops

We now have virtual video workshops available over Chicago, MLA, and APA documentation styles. You can find these on our YouTube Channel.

Assignment Specific Tutoring

If you email a copy of the assignment sheet or rubric that you are using for the semester to cwc@uca.edu, we will look over it and keep it to reference when students come in for sessions.

You can also email us to set up a time to come and explain your assignment and what you really want tutors to focus on during one of our weekly staff meetings.
