What is a Writing Center?
The Writing Center is a collaborative space where students, faculty, staff, and alumni come together to discuss and improve their writing. All undergraduate, graduate, and Bachelor's Degree for Professionals students are welcome to use our services. Our consultants are highly trained professional, graduate, and undergraduate tutors in a variety of majors.
What does a Writing Center do?
The Writing Center assists clients with any stage of the writing process – from brainstorming to making final edits – and we encourage clients to make appointments early in their writing process. Our consultants can help with any kind of writing, including class papers, presentations, group projects, resumes and cover letters, and creative writing work.
In addition to one-on-one appointments, we hold regular workshops, social events, and Write-In Days to provide writers a place to learn about writing and develop their skills. The center can be used as a study space too! We have computer stations, comfortable chairs, and lots of candy to help you be productive.
Our Mission Statment
Through research-based, theoretically-informed training and consulting practices, The Writing Center provides writing consultation and instructional support to all writers and fosters diverse written communication practices and multiliteracies in the CLU community. Inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility are integral values at the center of our everyday practices that continue to shape our mission, guide our hiring and training, inform our pedagogy, engage our activity planning, and create our own space.
