Writing Resources Center


Based on the view that knowledge is fundamentally social, the WRC is committed to fostering an environment of active, collaborative learning geared towards improving one’s writing process.  The WRC is dedicated to providing excellent one-on-one writing instruction to students, faculty and staff from all disciplines and backgrounds.  Our goal is not to fix papers, but to develop better writers.

About the WRC

The Writing Resource Center possesses computing facilities that integrate word processing, research, tutoring, and assistive technologies. In addition to its web-based resources, the WRC houses a library of instructional materials.    WRC staff offer presentations and host workshops on such topics as documenting sources, peer response, and revision strategies. Consultation is also available, on a limited basis, to support faculty in teaching writing across the curriculum.

Staffed by undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of disciplines, the WRC offers teaching experience and leadership opportunities to tutors, many of them future educators, as they develop their own writing abilities and interpersonal skills.

As a university-wide service invested in the teaching and learning of writing in every discipline, the WRC coordinates its efforts with other academic support services. The WRC participates in university policy-making concerning writing and joins in the design and implementation of campus writing initiatives.
