RIC Writing Center Research Assistance

The Writing Center, located in Craig Lee Hall, helps students to learn about the writing process as they work through the writing assigned in their classes. Because students are usually more comfortable working with other students, the staff is comprised of peer tutors, who are extensively trained. The Center also provides tutorial services to staff and faculty and supports writing initiatives throughout the academic community. The director of the Writing Center also maintains a writing resource library for faculty, staff, and students and is available as a resource to anyone at Rhode Island College.

The Student Resources page gives extensive guidance in using several citing sources, MLA, APA and Chicago Manual of Style.
