Mission Statement

Tutors Fall 2017

Written by the tutors of the Writing Center, Fall 2017

Our Writing Center strives to provide an inclusive, accessible, and supportive environment where students are encouraged to strengthen their writing skills, their individual writing processes, and their ability to communicate in their own writing. The role of the peer tutor is to create a positive atmosphere and facilitate a collaborative and comprehensive educational experience at any stage of the writing process. Peer tutors come from a variety of academic backgrounds and are trained to support writing across the disciplines. Our emphasis on learning over grades ensures the future success and growth of the student.

To this end, we will provide:

  • Diverse and inclusive tutoring styles to fit your unique skill set and writer voice
  • An encouraging environment where students will be asked to think critically and set goals for themselves.
  • A comfortable and accessible physical space
