The Writing Center offers, in conjunction with other support services and the cooperation of faculty members:
Feedback: Tutors are trained to provide feedback, regardless of the writing level. Whether you are working on a three sentence response or a six page research paper, we are able to give you feedback that will help you improve your writing.
Computer Lab: Computers and printing are provided, free of charge, for student use. Students writing in any discipline are encouraged to use the Writing Center computer lab.
References and Resource Literature: Dictionaries, thesauri, and style reference guides (Keys for Writers) are available in the computer lab. In addition, copies of some textbooks are available upon request, for use in the Writing Center.
Tutoring: Computer lab tutors are on hand for multiple students at a time. If you want more in-depth feedback on your writing, or are looking for some help developing writing skills, you can schedule a tutoring session. For more information on tutoring sessions, contact the Writing Center Coordinator on your campus.
Editing or "Fixing" We are a resource to facilitate student learning. For our tutors, editing, proofreading, major reorganization, or otherwise "fixing" student writing is counter-productive to a students' mastery of their own writing skills, and thus counter to our goals.
Grade or Academic Counseling: Students are responsible for the information they collect. We strive to provide accurate, helpful information to students who use the Writing Center. We believe improvements in writing generally coincide with improvements in classroom performance, but our primary goal is to help students understand and master writing skills, not to "get" a student a better grade.
