This General Academic Services (GAS) site was established with the help of a Lincoln University faculty development grant in summer 2008. Its goal is twofold:
To provide a repository of academic materials to support Lincoln University/University City graduate and undergraduate students and faculty, such as explanations of common writing difficulties, explanations and models of good academic writing style, practice grammar exercises, annotated links to other online writing aids, explanations of APA style issues, and general academic policies;
To provide online writing support for anyUniversity City student in need of writing assistance beyond that already provided in the classroom.
The GAS website is not designed to replace a writing textbook, grammar handbook, or style manual. Its goal is simply to provide quick answers to common problems and to point you towards other more in-depth resources that might be helpful.
We encourage your suggestions for improvement and expansion of services. Please CONTACT US and let us know how we might serve you better.
