HPD Effective Writing Center for the College of Health Care Sciences: Make an Appointment!

Welcome to the Effective Writing Center (EWC)!

Coach Contact Information

The EWC has only 25 appointment slots available each week to serve students in all programs in the College of Health Care Sciences, and those appointment slots fill up on a first-come-first-served basis. Avoid procrastination. Schedule an appointment early in your writing process so you are able to get an appointment before the slots are filled. Due to time constraints, coaches do not provide last-minute/emergency sessions, if slots are already filled.

CLICK HERE to view Lori, Gary, and Dana's calendar of availability. CLICK HERE to email Maureen to schedule an appointment. Or, you can email us directly at the addresses listed below.
