The Writing Center
The Writing Center provides peer support for student writers on all types of writing projects in any subject. Students also use the Writing Center for personal writing, application essays, resumes and cover letters. The Writing Center does not proofread or correct papers; writing assistants work collaboratively with writers offering feedback and providing ideas and methods for editing and polishing their work. Our goal is to provide writers with transferable skills that will help them on future writing projects. We also provide students with additional resources such as dictionaries and grammar handbooks, textbooks, handouts, exercises, and instructional software for composing, editing, punctuation, and grammar basics.
Writing Center Program Specific Outcomes
The Writing Center supports the college-wide Core Learning Outcomes, in addition to promoting the following program-specific outcomes:
- The Writing Center fosters the confidence of student writers by clarifying and promoting techniques for effective writing.
- The Writing Center enhances the academic experience of peer tutors by encouraging academic development activities and self-reflection.
