Because writers’ needs are highly individual, the Writing Center favors one-to-one or small group conferences and workshops either in person or online. We welcome all writers and assignments from all disciplines. In our approach, we promote student learning and thinking by helping writers focus on issues of meaning and by involving them in reflection on their own work. By building collaborative peer relations with student writers and modeling appropriate academic behavior, we help students build the confidence, articulate the ideas, acquire the strategies, and learn the skills to engage effectively in their writing processes. In support of faculty efforts to promote student writing, the Center serves faculty and staff in all disciplines through classroom workshops, co-teaching presentations, and classroom-based group conferences. To further support members of the faculty and staff who would appreciate feedback on their writing, the Center provides collaborative peer response. We are prepared to work with faculty across the campus with writing, the teaching of writing, and innovative ways in which we may continue to provide support to them.
