Mission & Goals

Mission Statement

The Writing Center at Loyola University Chicago believes that good writing is good thinking, and our work is an extension and elaboration of that motto. Our Center promotes writing as a means of reflecting and learning, and as a means for communicating and participating in the many communities of which we are a part. As such, we regard writing as a non-linear, recursive, and ongoing process that allows us to shape and re-shape our ideas continuously. At the Writing Center, we support our clients at every level, from every discipline, and at any stage in the writing process. We are committed to promoting the diversity of voices and perspectives that are the hallmark of our Loyola community.
