The Dr. Murray and Anna C.

Part of the Klara and Larry Silverstein Student Success Center located on the 7th floor of the Cooperman Library, the RWC offers services to all registered students at the college – undergraduate and graduate – and maintains an inclusive website comprising an extensive library of online materials and resource links in the areas of research information and techniques, writing tools and references, evaluating information sources, ESL and literary resources, and instructional resources regarding teaching and learning. Students can utilize the RWC’s services by registering for individualized, paired, or online e-tutoring sessions by appointment, receive assistance on a drop-in basis during scheduled hours of operation, or attend the RWC’s on-site workshop series. Tutors help to develop a reading-writing process that students can use to improve their skills and to negotiate the requirements of academic reading and writing.
