What We Do

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.

English Language Support

Our trained consultants work alongside English as Second Language (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.

Writing Center Blog

The new Writing Center Blog features weekly posts by student writers. According to the Blog Manager, Monica Colón, this space for "digital conversation" aims to "empower students to communicate their thoughts through clear, charitable writing, target specific issues student writers face, and foster a community of writers on campus."

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.

"In the past, I was very afraid of sharing my writing with other people.  After I started going to the Writing Center, I feel the complete opposite. The staff there offers a very welcoming, supportive and judgment free environment. Whenever I go in with an essay, regardless of its state, I know that I will leave with helpful, constructive and uplifting advice. As a result, I’ve become a confident writer and I am no longer afraid to share my writing with others."
