The Writing Center

The Writing Center provides a space for undergraduate and graduate students across the disciplines to develop effective writing skills and processes. We seek to equip student writers to serve Christ and His Kingdom through clear communication of their unique ideas. 

What We Do

In one-on-one, thirty-minute sessions, our trained writing consultants collaborate with students on their writing at any stage in the writing process, offering specific feedback and suggesting relevant techniques that equip writers to improve their writing.

Meet the Consultants

We are a dynamic group of writers trained to engage with students' unique writing processes. As people continually transformed by God’s Word, we believe in the power of words as tools of influence.

ESL Services

Our trained consultants work alongside ESL students, helping them to develop their academic literacy in an English-language context, communicate more confidently and clearly, and express their own unique voices.

A Hospitable Space

We seek to embody Christian hospitality as a Writing Center, welcoming all students from every background. We recognize that writing is a vulnerable act; thus, we aim to extend grace and gratitude to student writers who invite us to participate in their writing process.
