For Faculty/Staff

The Writing Center @ MSU is committed to helping writers wherever they are in the writing process from brainstorming, to drafting, to revising, to editing. This fall we will be doing both online and in-person options for our services to those we offer face-to-face, allowing students to work with us from wherever they find themselves geographically.

We will also be offering online and in-person services for faculty and staff members.


We will be offering both in-person and online consulting locations and modalities for Fall 2021. You can schedule appointments for yourself or direct students to do so through our online scheduling site. Please visit our hours and locations page for an explanation of our hours and locations/modalities.

If you require verification that a student came to the Writing Center, the student can forward you a copy of our client report letter, which summarize the session.

Online Chat

We have also instituted an online chat feature that can be accessed through our homepage. This chat feature is intended to answer quick questions, help students make appointments, or troubleshoot any tech issues with their online appointments. If questions become too lengthy, students will be asked to make an appointment. If users provide an email when initiating a chat session, they can be sent a transcript of the session.


We would be happy to provide faculty with the general PowerPoint slide decks used for any of our workshops in the regular menu.  If you would like to have any of these, please send an email request to

New Ideas

We do ask that you not use the writing center as a general class activity, i.e., since we can’t have face-to-face peer review, I’ll send you all to the WC.  We are open to working with you, however, if you want to set up some designated open/drop-in times for your students with a consultant or two who has been briefed on your particular assignment and expectations. We’re also open to other pre-planned ideas. Please reach out to Dr. Grace Pregent at, and we’ll see what’s possible.
