Our mission at the Writing Center is to work with writers of various experience levels, learning styles, and from across all disciplines in an effort to support their growth as readers, thinkers, and writers. We aim to accomplish this through one-on-one sessions with tutors who are trained to assess both the writer and the writing. Tutors work to empower writers and promote independence.
Because the Writing Center’s work is predicated on a pedagogy that values the writer's authority, we offer guidance through methods of inquiry and process. Our investment is not in correcting a writer's essay, but rather in helping writers understand the expectations of their readers and fulfill the needs of the writing situation. To this end, we offer a structured, yet safe and supportive, learning environment that welcomes writers to seek and receive assistance in obtaining the skills that they will need throughout their academic careers and beyond.
