Organizational Leadership: Writing & Citation Help

Writing Center Services

Writing Center Home Page

The Writing Center is the only academic support unit on campus specifically designed to promote your development and success as a college writer. The consultant team is available to assist you in-person and online with writing projects for any course and any level of instruction. The Writing Center also offers specialized assistance for multimodal compositions or new media projects like digital narratives, blogs, websites, slideware presentations, and even YouTube videos.

Writing Center Video Tutoring

An online tutoring session is a 1-hour, real-time consultation with a writing consultant. If you work full-time or have family commitments, the online sessions are perfect for you. Without leaving the workplace or home, you have the opportunity to meet with writing consultants in a manner that honors your responsibilities outside of school.

When scheduling an online appointment, please be aware that our tutors can help you only with content. If your concerns are limited to grammar, you will need to make a face-to-face appointment. Additionally, we require that online appointments be 1-hour due to the unique challenges that the online format presents.

Writing Center Evening Hours

Night hours sessions are ideal if you need some last minute help, or if you aren’t able to make an appointment during regular business hours. These face-to-face sessions are typically only about 15 minutes in length, so they are not designed to go as in-depth as appointments during the daytime.
