What we do
The mission of the Writing Center is to work with any student on any project at any stage of the process. We strive to fulfill this mission through synchronous coaching sessions—what this means is that we look at projects as the tools to teach writers new skills. Much like an athlete attends practices throughout a sporting season and their coach gives feedback on how to improve their sportsmanship as a whole, writers come to the Writing Center for practice in and feedback on their writing process. The Writing Center’s coaches additionally participate in the creation and curation of resources and workshops that make our services accessible to the entire University’s community of writers, whoever and wherever they are, whenever they need a little direction and encouragement.
