Code of Conduct

The Hofstra University Writing Center aims to provide a safe space for the exchange of intellectual ideas. Consistent with the mission of Hofstra University, writing center staff and clients will treat each other with respect and dignity. We aim to model professional exchange and engagement. The Hofstra University Writing Center does not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any members of the Hofstra community.

Appointment Policies for Current Hofstra Students

  • Writers may make a maximum of one appointment per day and three appointments per week. All appointments are 50-minutes long.
  • Writers should arrive on time to their sessions. If a writer is five (5) minutes late, we consider the appointment missed; however, we will call to see if the writer is on the way. If the writer is not on the way, we will mark the appointment as missed and open the appointment to another writer.
  • If necessary, writers should cancel appointments online at least two hours before their sessions. If a writer misses two appointments, without canceling in advance within one semester, that writer will not be able to make Writing Center appointments for the remainder of the semester.

Tutoring sessions are a limited resource, and we want to help our many Hofstra writers as effectively as possible.

If writers need to discuss these policies or their scheduling accounts with the Writing Center, they should contact Writing Center Director Andrea Efthymiou (andrea.r.efthymiou[at]hofstra.edu) or Assistant Director Marilyn Buono (marilyn.f.buono[at]hofstra.edu).
