Writing and Learning Center

Mission Statement

The Writing and Learning Center guides UIW undergraduate students in strengthening their writing skills across disciplines. Our programs support students throughout the writing process, in a welcoming environment.

What We Do

Whether you're an experienced or novice writer, learning in community can benefit your practice. We offer support for writing in undergraduate courses across the disciplines. Have a conversation with a tutor to develop and clarify your ideas, incorporate research, polish your prose, and organize your work. Tutors have been recommended by faculty and trained to guide you throughout the writing process.
