Writing Center

Mission Statement

The Writing Center’s mission is to coach undergraduate and graduate students in all stages of the writing process through interactive, collaborative, and individualized online or on-ground sessions. Our goal is to help students become more effective, confident, life-long writers through critical thinking, self-observation, and application of sound writing principles and strategies.

We offer 25-minute online consultations about writing and critical thinking. These consultations take the form of conversations on the topics you'd like to address: for example, developing a thesis statement, developing your ideas, organizing your argument, citing sources, or working on mechanics. Please note, however, that we will not "fix" your paper for you: we are here to provide you with the tools to improve your own writing. We are not editors, but teachers.
