Annual Programs

The Write Stuff is a series of programs for students working on their theses, capstones, and dissertations. Write Start(fall semester) leads students to the “write” resources for proper planning, searching the literature, writing a research question and IRB protocol, and crafting a literature review. Write Now (spring semester) guides students to the finish line of their project by focusing on writing, editing, crafting, presenting, and publishing.

Information Highway is a week-long interactive online game that prepares first-year students for summer research and practicum experiences. Each day students learn necessary research skills, including constructing a research questions, conducting a literature review, navigating library resources, citation management, and utilizing library services.
