About Us


Our Mission

At the Writing Center our main goal is to help you become a better writer. We believe that all writers—of all levels of ability—can benefit from having an experienced writer respond to their work. We know today's academic writing environment is complex, and we also understand that each writer brings various needs, viewpoints, and experiences to the writing process. With this in mind, we offer writing assistance that meets your individual needs, wherever you are in your development as a writer.

Our tutors are available to help you at any point of the writing process—from brainstorming, to organizing, to putting the final touches on a bibliography. We believe the best way to become a better writer is to discuss your paper on a global scale before discussing specific issues like grammar or punctuation. As a result, we do not "correct" papers; instead, we collaborate with the writer. With this approach, we hope to provide assistance that is beneficial to your overall writing development.
