The mission of the DSC Writing Center is to help students, staff, and faculty achieve their communication-related goals by providing the educational support and resources they need to continually build upon their abilities in all genres and stages of communication.
About Our Mission
The Writing Center is here to help students become more effective and confident communicators. Our primary service involves one-on-one, 45-minute consultations that engage students in self-assessment through collaboration and support. We offer writing expertise for academic, career, creative, business, and personal projects. Because writing is a practice utilized in all academic disciplines, we aim to develop communication skills in any area of study, and our staff members have a range of educational and professional backgrounds.
The Writing Center is not a drop-off or email service for student work; our goal is to discuss writing concerns and revision so writers leave the consultation with their own techniques for developing future projects. We cannot give predictions as to what grade a student will receive on a project, but instead focus on strengthening its content and structure. Students can speak directly to their instructor with any questions about grades or assignment assessments.
