Welcome to the Writing & Reading Center
The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Writing and Reading Center is part of the Academic Resource Center (ARC), a federal TRIO student support service in operation since 1976. Whether students need writing help, tutoring for courses in humanities or social sciences, skill-building, or support for physical or learning disabilities, the WRC staff is ready to help.
On April 5, 2014 we hosted the New England Peer Tutoring Association's Conference to the theme of "Harry Potter." Over 200 tutors, from 24 different schools, attended. Thank you to all of these participants for allowing us an opportunity to share such outstanding and thought-provoking work.
We host several workshops throughout the year for the campus community, particularly our TRIO grant clients. The workshops we're offering for spring 2014 are:
- Resume Writing
- Creative Writing
- Writing Personal Statements
- Public Speaking
- Writing GRE Analytical Essays
A full list of workshops and times may be found here.
Staffed by peer tutors, our services are used by both undergraduate and graduate students. It doesn't matter if you have only one question or if you need long term assistance in one or more areas; the WRC exists to help students be successful at UMass Dartmouth. Here you can view the full Mission Statement.
