About Us

With the emergence of UB’s new Center for Excellence in Writing, a cohesive vision for writing development at UB is becoming a reality.  Our goal is to invigorate and strengthen writing practices at UB, a growing, global research university.

The Writing Center:  Located in 209 Baldy, the Writing Center provides services to writers across the campus.  We provide individual consultations to writers at all levels, supporting their research and writing activities. The Center also hosts workshops and programs to encourage the pursuit of excellence in writing at UB.     

Writing in the Disciplines (WID):  Recognizing that learning to write is a life-long activity and that each discipline has its own research and writing conventions, we encourage writing instruction across the university, supporting faculty and departments to develop curriculum, syllabi and assignments.  In addition, we may provide support to individual, writing-intensive classrooms.
