Students, tutors, and teachers focusing on writing form the Writing Center community and create a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere in which writers work with other writers. Students visiting the center are encouraged to discuss their writing and writing in general.

The Center helps writers become better writers, and to this end, our goals are:

  • Helping students enhance their writing skills
  • Helping students move from writer-based to reader-based prose
  • Focusing on writing processes and the value of creating multiple drafts
  • Helping students see strengths and problems in their writing
  • Helping students learn to proofread their writing
  • Empowering students to own their writing
  • Nurturing creative ideas

The Center is staffed by tutors who assist students at any stage of the writing process. The Center welcomes students from all disciplines and also offers resources for students writing in English as a second language.
