The mission of the University Writing Center, which serves the Macomb and Quad Cities campuses, is to offer students at any academic level collaborative, one-on-one consultation on writing projects from any discipline at any point in the writing process.
People often mistakenly think of writing centers as places for people in trouble--places where experts tell them everything that is wrong with their writing. That is not the case here. We believe that writing is a social act and that talk about writing is essential to revision, no matter the skill level of the writer. Whether you are a freshman brainstorming essay topics for English 100, a junior revising a lab report for Psychology 323, or a graduate student fine-tuning references in Turabian on an article being sent out for publication, our staff of graduate students and talented undergraduates are trained to assist you with your writing concerns.
