About The Bates Center

Until the Fall of 2000, the Department of English supported and housed a Writing Center open to all university personnel and students. However, in the Fall of 2000 a cross-curricular University Writing Center opened in locations across the campus to provide writing assistance to other academic areas. With the opening of the University Writing Center, the Bates Center concentrated its efforts on training graduate teaching assistants, providing writing consultations for first-year students in English, and creating workshops for English 1100 and 1200 courses.
