Mission Statement

The mission of the Writing Center is to empower students by providing quality, collaborative tutoring in a nonjudgmental space. Students can leave the Center with greater confidence as writers, having learned something new, realized the value of their ideas and life experiences.

Students who use our center can expect to receive personal, one-on-one instruction that will lead them to be independent learners, thinkers and writers. We offer writing assistance in all subject areas including:

  • CATW Preparation
  • Psychology
  • English
  • Research paper writing
  • ESL
  • Sociology
  • Geography
  • All sciences
  • History
  • All writing intensive courses
  • Art History

Policy on Proofreading

Sometimes students come to the Writing Center with the expectation of having their papers proofread or corrected. Proofreading implies co-authoring, which raises issues of academic integrity.

  • The student should show that s/he has reviewed the work independently or will be given the opportunity to review, edit or revise independently.
  • The tutor will not make any corrections on the paper, but will suggest ways the student can identify errors.
  • The tutor will supply instructional material to aid the student with error correction.
  • The student should then rewrite the essay to submit to the instructor and return to the Writing Center for follow-up.
