UB opened the Center for Excellence in Writing (CEW) this semester to support faculty and student writers across all disciplines.
In addition to assisting individual writers, the CEW serves as a
resource for writing research or grant proposals, and teaching,
practice and assessment in writing. Additionally, the CEW will host
workshops and tutorials, including a weeklong “Dissertation
Bootcamp” writing retreat in which graduate students spend
four hours a day mastering dissertation writing.
