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.
