About the CEW

Writing projects can be among the most difficult (and rewarding) challenges of academic life!  We get through it as a community!

The Center for Excellence in Writing supports UB Writers, primarily through one-to-one consultation services. Undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and staff are invited to meet with one of our consultants to discuss their writing process, work out particular dilemmas in their projects, or receive thoughtful feedback on their drafts. 

CEW consultants have demonstrated success as academic writers in a variety of fields. They have also received special training related to helping writers to overcome obstacles and develop their writing.

We can help you with any kind of writing project from coursework, major landmark projects such as theses or dissertations, application materials, or even a particularly tricky email! You can get help with digital genres in our Digital Composition Lab.

In addition to consultation services, the CEW presents workshops for faculty related to writing instruction across the disciplines, as well as topical workshops helpful to writers at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
