Return to: Center for Academic Excellence  

Walden provides writing support for all students during their studies through the university’s online Writing Center. Writing Center staff members are full-time writing instructors and dissertation editors with expertise in APA style, grammar, and other aspects of scholarly writing. Services and resources include webinars, course- and competency-based writing support, interactive modules, and web-based writing guidance; one-on-one paper reviews of competency and coursework; and editorial support for capstone writers through the Form and Style Review. Information and links to these services can be found on the Writing Center website and Doctoral Capstone Form and Style website.

Faculty members are encouraged to refer students to the center for assistance, as needed, and may even require students to interact with the center’s web resources as part of a course. Faculty members should also encourage students working on competency and coursework to make use of the one-on-one paper review service, which students may use up to twice a week. However, because the center cannot guarantee paper review availability, faculty members should recommend but not require this service

In addition to student support, the Writing Center supports faculty members in their work with students by offering faculty-facing webinars, Web materials, and a dedicated faculty liaison. Visit the Writing Center Faculty Toolbox to access these resources. The Toolbox site also contains request forms for services such as course visits, chapter edits, and faculty referrals.
