What the Writing Center Does
Our main goal is to help students build transferable writing skills they can apply in any writing situation. Students who work with the Writing Center learn how to create more thoughtful and well-constructed writing.
We engage students in a conversation about their writing projects. Our consultants are experienced in asking questions that foster critical thinking and inquiry in the assignments given rhetorical context.
We do not edit writing assignments. Rather, we teach revision strategies and help students find the tools they need to lead their ongoing improvement as writers.
In short, we consult with writers. We work alongside as thinking partners and readers who facilitate writing success by helping students communicate, articulate, and evolve the words on their pages.
