The Writing Center exists to promote excellence in writing and success in students' academic careers. We extend our services to our student writers, to our peer consultants, and to our University community.
Because writers' needs are highly individualized, the Writing Center favors one-to-one or small group conferences, either in person or online. In our approach, we promote learning and critical thinking by helping writers focus on issues of meaning and by involving them in reflection on their own work. By building collaborative peer relations with student writers, we help students gain confidence, articulate ideas, acquire strategies, and learn the skills to engage effectively in their writing processes.
