Writing Center instructors aim to teach students in all disciplines (except for Comm-A courses) and at all levels to become more effective writers.
In individual meetings, our experienced instructors help students develop and organize ideas for papers, theses, or dissertations. Although we do not offer a proofreading service, instructors provide a critical audience for students, pointing out possible problems in their drafts and offering advice for revisions.

Online Writing Center
We offer one of the most comprehensive online writing centers in the country. Our website offers detailed information about the Writing Center, descriptions and schedules for our workshops, academic writing handouts, instruction via email, and online conferences.
The Writing Center offers a wide variety of noncredit classes for undergraduate and graduate students that review basic principles of writing and introduce common forms of academic writing.
Schedules and online registration for these workshops are posted on our website.
