The Writing Center’s purpose is to help Chestnut Hill College students become skilled writers, critical thinkers, and independent learners.
The Writing Center offers academic assistance in grammar and the writing process—from generating ideas to strategies on how students can revise and proofread their own papers for content, style, and organization. While we work with students at any stage of the writing process, we are not a proofreading or editing service. Our approach is interactive and dialogic; that is, we engage students in a collaborative learning experience.
We aim to assist students in building the skills and confidence they need to be successful in their Chestnut Hill College courses and in their future academic and professional endeavors. Therefore, our objective is not to make one paper or assignment perfect. Rather, we aim to provide feedback on students’ work and to help students engage in learning processes to develop or polish their abilities in writing for various academic disciplines. We will work with students to achieve this goal within the context of their assignments and in accordance with the skills outlined in their courses’ objectives and academic departments’ policies.
