Our Mission at the Writing Center
Note: The Writing Center will be offering virtual appointments during the Fall 2020 term. Online appointments and eTutoring are both open and available to students. For those of you new to online or eTutoring appointments, read the descriptions on our Make an Appointment page explaining these two types of appointments. If you have any questions, or if online / eTutoring is not accessible to you (limited internet or technology access) please email the Writing Center coordinator.
The Writing Center supports UM-Dearborn students by providing one-to-one consultations on writing projects, presentations, assignments, and creative work. Our trained consultants are prepared to meet with you at any stage in the writing process, from brainstorming to revision. We will work with you to set and achieve goals and reflect on what you have accomplished in each meeting.
Because of the broad variety of spoken and written forms of English and the writing that happens across languages, we will work with you to communicate in the genre and voice most appropriate for your audience. Writing is a process and a practice, and our mission is to develop a community of writers for writers—a space for collaboration and mutual support.
Writing in the university can be an anxious and isolating task. Why do it alone? Make an appointment today!
