Our New Website
This fall, we’re excited to launch our new website. The Writing Center team has been working throughout the summer to design a site that’s welcoming, attractive, easy to navigate, and that includes the information and resources most useful to Baruch students and faculty. We hope you’ll take some time to explore. Here are some highlights:
New Look. We’ve created a new logo and tagline series centered on what we most hope to welcome and foster in the Writing Center: risks, exploration, questions, and challenges, for example. You’ll notice the same fonts, colors and logos throughout the site and other Writing Center literature, like our brochures and signs, so you can always recognize us.
Improved Layout. A new navigation menu and homepage highlight our mission, upcoming events, and key programs. Now, too, you can schedule an appointment from any page on our site, using the calendar icon to the right. We also have more flexibility to update our page, and to add information or resources you request, so our page stays current and responsive to your needs.
Updated Online Resources. We’ve updated the links on our online writing guides, made it easier to scan for the resources you need, and added a new page: Baruch Resources, with links to other campus resources that can help you achieve your academic and professional goals.
Expanded Faculty Resources. We’ve added significantly to our resources and information for faculty, including a new Referral Form, online Classroom Visit Invitation Forms, updated workshop lesson plans, blurbs for syllabi, and faculty FAQs.
We’re proud of our work, but we’re not about to sit back and rest. Soon we’ll add an apps page, launch a new Writing Center blog, and relaunch i Magazine. You’ll always find announcements of our new programs, webpages and services on our homepage.
The Writing Center would like to offer our deepest thanks to Luke Waltzer from the Center for Teaching and Learning, and Tom Harbison and Craig Stone from the Bernard L. Schwartz Communications Institute, for their indefatigable generosity, guidance, and assistance in creating this new site.
