Writing Center Fast Facts


  • During the 2010-2011 academic year, we conducted over 10,400 one-to-one consultations with writers across the university.
  • A recent assessment revealed that students are just as apt to work with writing consultants on content, organization, and development issues as grammar and mechanics.
  • Writing consultants work with students one-to-one or in small groups on a weekly basis in all first-year writing classrooms--WRT 098 and WRT 150.
