The Writing Center provides a place where all University
students, faculty, and staff are welcome to discuss their
writing with trained writing consultants. It is one of the
three arms of the University's Institute for Writing Studies
(IWS) and exists to collaborate with all writers.
In addition to providing one-to-one consultations with students,
the Writing Center sponsors readings and presentations by students
and faculty, as well as faculty conversations about writing
pedagogy and research methods. Our undergraduate and graduate
consultants are active in professional organizations and present
their research at regional and national conferences. The
Writing Center exists to foster a writing culture across the
University. To learn more, explore our digication site.
Our Approach to Sessions
Face-to-face sessions with consultants help students become aware
of their writing strengths and weaknesses and develop strategies
for becoming effective writers. Instead of "fixing" or
"correcting" papers, consultants offer advice and questions to spur
self-reflection and critical thinking about students' writing, and
they also work to model productive techniques for better planning,
drafting, revising, and editing. Want to know more, explore our digication site.
Online Learning or Online Courses
Both of our Writing Centers also serve Online Learning
students. If you're a Online Learning student and would like
to get assistance, click the link below to
register and/or make an appointment. You may choose to
meet a consultant on-line in a chat room or upload a
paper via e-tutoring. If you choose e-tutoring, one of our
consultants will write back to you, typically within a day during
the regular school year.
