The Writing Resource Center (WRC) provides individual support for academic writers across the university. Our writing consultants provide hands-on instruction specific to each writer’s goals. The WRC offers in-house programming such as workshops and student and faculty writing groups. Our consultants conduct classroom visits and writing-oriented programs across campus. Whether we are working with undergraduate students engaged in their general education or graduate, post-doc, and faculty writers working in more specialized fields, we encourage visits from writers at any stage of the writing process — from understanding contexts for writing and interpreting assignment prompts, to revising and organizing ideas. Our instruction emphasizes:
- Working with writers to articulate their ideas clearly and persuasively
- Helping writers to understand the choices available to them within various academic genres
- Supporting writers in understanding their own writing processes
- Encouraging writers to recognize and to value the collaborative nature of writing
