What does Writing Support Desk do?

The Writing Support Desk(WSD) offers guidance to all undergraduate and graduate students in their academic writing process, such as term papers, senior theses and master's theses.In the process of answering questions from the tutor, students recognize problematic points in their papers. Therefore, by explaining the paper to someone, students are encouraged to “identify” and “resolve” these issues on their own. Students are welcome to talk about their papers at any stage of the writing process. Even if the students haven’t written any single word in their paper, the WSD tutors will serve as a venue for dialogue and discussions on matters related to the writing process. This may include brainstorming process to help students understand and identify potential topic to work on.
