About Us

The Writing Center is a place for all students to get free assistance with their writing. Our goal is to coach you through the writing process, help you to strengthen your writing, and give you the steps to become your own best editor. We do this primarily by talking to you in a one-on-one session or by sending you written feedback. When we meet with you, we want to know what your writing goals are, and together, we will determine the next steps for our time together.

Our mission is to help you navigate the complicated landscape of academic writing. We cannot guarantee an error-free paper or that you will receive a perfect grade after working with us; however, we can guarantee that we will stay present, listen with respect, and respond with compassion while working with you. Our Writing Assistants are successful student writers who have been trained to provide writing feedback. By offering you individualized writing support, we can help you to identify what is already working well in your writing, as well as what needs more attention. As you practice new skills and refine your writing process, we are here to be your cheerleaders, guides, and allies.

The Writing Center's drop-in support is still available remotely through our drop-in Zoom room. We have both in-person and online appointments that can be scheduled using TutorTrac.
