Objectives of the AWC

The Academic Writing Specialist pilot was proposed with the following objectives:

  • Synchronize and provide direction to writing and publishing resources hosted at USU, partner institutions, and offered online.
  • Develop credit-granting writing courses if requested by schools or colleges.
  • Advise faculty and students on publishing options, opportunities, and avoiding copyright infringement/plagiarism.
  • Technical assistance for students writing dissertations, theses, or DNP projects.
  • Help route completed theses, dissertations, and projects to the University Archives.
