Each workshop covers appropriate ways to communicate from an American cultural perspective.
Here are the topics for Spring 2014:

Links for registration will be posted on the University Writing Center’s upcoming events calendar closer to their start date. Everyone is welcome to attend, but we ask that you register before the event so we know how many students to plan for. Registration typically opens one week before each workshop.
