The Writing Center offers specialized assistance to faculty at CU Denver, CU Anschutz, and CU South Denver through our Faculty Drop Box. This service is designed to assist faculty with integrating writing across the curriculum, developing and scaffolding writing assignments, grading student writing, and effectively commenting on student work. Faculty members can submit assignment prompts, rubrics, and course materials to our Faculty Drop Box for feedback. In response to their submission, faculty will receive a summary letter along with in-text comments highlighting specific areas for revision.
Feedback for faculty is provided by either the Writing Center Director or Assistant Director within four days, and submitted documents are never shared with students or other Writing Center staff. Following this feedback, we will be happy to meet with faculty individually to discuss revisions, answer questions, and support the development of new course materials.
To begin using the Faculty Drop Box, login to WCOnline and choose the “Faculty Drop Box” schedule from the dropdown menu. If you don’t yet have an account, you’ll first need to register.
Faculty may also be interested in reviewing our various handouts on teaching writing.
