What does a Writing Center do?
The Writing Center is a peer colloaborative learning space. Our peer consultants assist 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 host workshops, social events, and collaborative space 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 and free coffee 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.
