The JWU Academic Success Center is open for in-person and remote appointments by zoom.

Whether you're just getting started or need final editing advice, writing coaches are super kind and trained to help you at any stage of the writing process. 

Top Tips for Working with the Writing Lab:

  1.    Book an appointment by phone: 401-598-1785  
  2.    Book an appointment online via USucceed: In jwulink, click Academics tab,  Academic Support Services.
  3.    Go to the Yena Center and the center is on the first floor! You can walk right up to the desk and ask to meet with a tutor or writing coach, then come on upstairs to the library for quiet study space.

Database Share Out: Finding Resources for your Term Project 

  1. Break into your term projects groups.

  2. Assign each person in the group a different database to work on (databases are listed on the Google Doc below)

  3. Each group will answer the questions on this Google Doc

  4.  Once in the database, find at least one report/article that you may use for an upcoming assignment for each database.

  5. We will come back to a class together and share out: who answered ALL of the questions? How many citations does each group have? You should have quite a few!
