The Writing Center is pleased to offer services that support and assist all faculty at CU Denver, CU Anschutz, and CU South Denver. We assist with professional-development and course/curriculum concerns such as designing assignments, creating rubrics, and developing effective commenting strategies. While the Center is not funded to assist faculty with their own writing, we can connect faculty to qualified editors for assistance with editing and developing manuscripts, citation and documentation, etc.   

We offer practical and theoretical discipline-specific support to faculty through:

    1. ​Designing & Evaluating Writing Assignments
    2. Scaffolding Assignments
    3. Designing Rubrics
    4. Effective Peer Review​

The Director and Assistant Director are available to meet with faculty individually or with departments as a whole to collaboratively develop writing assignments, rubrics, and response paradigms to fulfill pedagogical goals.
If you would like more information, please contact Writing Center Director Justin Bain at (303) 315-7353.
