The Staff of the James Oliver Community Writing Center welcomes students for the 2016 fall semester. 

The James Oliver Community Writing Center provides writing support to students that is all part of a total across-the-curriculum writing resource that aids matriculation by helping students have successful learning outcomes (SLOs).

The Writing Center Drop-In lab (room B260) provides students with computers to write their essay assignments, printing services (10 pages/day), trained lab assistants to assist students with their service requests, as well as English tutors for one-on-one tutoring on a drop-in basis. In addition, the Writing Center supports supplemental instruction in the English and ESL departments through the scheduling of Writing Workshops in rooms B261 and B262.

The Drop-In lab’s hours are Monday-Thursday 9am-8pm, and Friday 9am-3pm.

The Writing Center Staff whose office is in room B258 consists of Terrence Fisher, Computer Network Technician, Pamela Crumpton, Instructional Assistant, and student workers (both Lab Assistants and English Tutors). Teachers can contact Terrence (510.464.3426) and or Pamela (510.464.3163) via email or phone to schedule lab orientations as well as instructional lab room usage in B261.
