Online Consulting at the Writing and Communications Corner

https://www.cbu.edu/wcc

wcc@cbu.edu

The Writing and Communications Corner is moving to a solely online consulting format until we return to campus.

There are two ways to participate in our online system:

Etutoring: Does not provide real-time interaction with a consultant.  Instead, you will be uploading a document for a consultant to review and upload back to you.  To participate, reserve a session just as you did for regular face-to-face appointments, and follow the instructions you receive in the pop-up. 

Online: Allows for real-time interaction with a consultant.  You will upload a document for a consultant to review, and you will interact with them as they do so.  To participate, reserve a session for a specific day and time to “meet” with consultants virtually: through, video, audio, and/or text chat.  Follow the instructions you see once you log in (and in the appointment pop up and confirmation email).

Note that while you can use a computer with a microphone (and even a camera), online consulting appointments can work using text chat.

You will see specific instructions on how to participate in either of our online formats at the top of the schedule you will see once you sign into WCONLINE.

Special Announcement

WCC Inclusivity Statement

The Christian Brothers University Writing and Communications Corner strives to uplift individuals at every level of their communicative understanding by developing their own voices in the manner that best suits them for achievement. As such, statements of disparaging, or otherwise deemed uncomfortable and targeted language regarding race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and political or personal preferences, can be examined critically but will not be tolerated beyond the scope of academic inquiry. Each consultant reserves the right to refuse to discuss sensitive or offensive matters and refer students to the proper spaces or resources.

The WCC provides services to aid the whole of CBU in a wide range of communicative projects, and as such, the WCC is dedicated to helping students be successful communicators.  

The WCC is not structured as a tutoring service; its goal is to be a space for open collaboration between students and consultants to allow student projects to reach their desired level of achievement. Consultants, who represent majors in all four CBU schools, are all interested in communication and helping others develop communicative excellence. The WCC does not work solely on essays, as examples of appropriate projects for consultation include:

Essays
Research papers
Technical reports
Speeches
Digital projects
Lab reports
Presentations
Creative writing
Business letters
Poetry
Fiction
Dramatic writing

The WCC assists students in every stage of the process of crafting any and all of these project types. Consultants are trained and willing to help and answer questions about all of the following:

  • Analyzing and understanding an assignment
  • Brainstorming
  • Revising and editing
  • Proofreading
  • Organization and presentation

Dr. Clayann Gilliam Panetta, Professor in the Department of Literature and Languages, is the Director of the WCC. She can be reached at cpanetta@cbu.edu and (901) 321-3955.
