    Tutors will be available to help students develop strategies to improve their writing by appointment only. The writing assistance is not designed to edit or proofread papers. Instead the assistance that is provided is intended to foster students’ writing proficiency and independence during the writing process. The University Writing Support Center will:

    • Assist students in improving their writing proficiency and independence during the various stages of their writing assignments
    • Provide a supportive environment where writers and readers work efficiently one-to-one
    • Train writing tutors to become effective readers of and responders to texts from various disciplines
