The Writing Center offers individual tutoring, group workshops, and a resource library.
Due to COVID-19, the Writing Center will conduct tutoring sessions entirely online through videoconferencing (Zoom) or email. However, a tutor will be present (during Spring 2021 semester) inside the writing center to help students adapt to online tutoring and to provide writing center resources, such as writing/grammar handouts and books.
