For Faculty

The BYU Research & Writing Center supports students from across campus with their research and writing needs.

Students who visit the RWC meet with a trained undergraduate writing or research consultant who will get to know them and the assignment, discuss their questions and concerns, review and discuss their work or ideas, and share feedback and resources to facilitate students’ long-term learning. The consultant’s highest priority is to help students meet assignment expectations and develop increased confidence as writers and researchers.
