Norwich University recently initiated the Graduate Writing Center for students enrolled in select Norwich online master’s programs. The Graduate Writing Center supports students with writing assignments by providing them access to a variety of tools and resources to use as they work through their programs.
Currently, students enrolled in the history, military history, leadership, and business administration programs have access to the Graduate Writing Center via the online classroom (Moodle Dashboard), while students in the diplomacy and international relation programs have the opportunity to opt into the Graduate Writing Center. Students may direct questions on accessing the Graduate Writing Center to their student support advisor.
The highlight of the program, the writing fellows, provides students access to Norwich alumni who excel in writing. The fellows not only can help improve the writing of current students, they can also engage with current students to build relationships with Norwich’s extensive alumni community before the students graduate.
Among the writing fellows, other opportunities within the Graduate Writing Center for students to improve their abilities include:
- Modules to assist with each specific steps of the writing process
- Writing tips specific to individual courses and instructors
- Chat forums for students to discuss courses and assignments
As the Graduate Writing Center is in its first phase, future tools for students may include resume and cover letter writing assistance. During this initial phase, the office hours for the Graduate Writing Center will be limited to the following:
- Mondays: 5:00 -6:00 a.m., 9:00-10:00 a.m., 9:30-10:30 p.m.
- Tuesdays: 2:00-3:30 p.m.
- Wednesdays: 8:30-10:00 a.m.
- Thursdays: 10:00-11:00 a.m., 8:00-9:00 a.m.
(All hours are based on Eastern Time).
Also, alumni of the online graduate programs may request to join the writing fellow team for Norwich’s Graduate Writing Center.
