Writing Center

The Writing Resource Center (WRC) provides support for writers across the university. We offer in-house programming, such as general campus workshops and student/ faculty writing groups, and we conduct classroom visits and writing-oriented programs across campus. Our writing consultants provide individualized, hands-on instruction specific to each writer’s goals. We encourage visits from writers at any stage of the writing process, from understanding contexts for writing and interpreting assignment prompts, to organizing and revising ideas. And, we work with all campus writers, including undergraduate students working on course assignments, graduate students working on theses and dissertations, post-doctoral and faculty writers composing grant applications and specialized genres, and staff members working on personal and professional projects.

WRC Instruction helps writers to:

  • Articulate their ideas clearly and persuasively
  • Understand the choices available to them within various academic genres
  • Understand their own writing processes
  • Recognize and to value the collaborative nature of writing


The Writing Center is located in Bellflower Hall. We also have satellite locations in Nord Hall, Room 202, the first floor of Kelvin Smith Library, and in the SAGES Café on the first floor of Crawford Hall. We also offer online consulting.  You can view directions to any of our locations.
