Director: Sarah R. Graff, Ph.D.

The Barrett Writing Center offers one-to-one writing tutoring exclusively for Barrett Honors students. The BWC is designed for students enrolled in the Honors College’s core classes, a two-semester sequence called The Human Event and the intensive one-semester The History of Ideas. Barrett students working on their Honors Thesis or working on a scholarship application may also utilize this writing resource. The Barrett Writing Center is directed by Honors faculty and staffed by Honors students who have completed the Human Event/History of Ideas classes, and received training to work at the BWC.
