The Writing Center is committed to fostering an environment where NU students, both undergraduate and graduate, learn to become more effective and confident writers. Our instructors see NU students across the disciplines for academic assignments, and professional writing such as CVs and motivation letters. Rather than proofreaders, Writing Center instructors serve as coaches and tutors with an eye to guiding students towards more clear and graceful prose.
The goal of the Writing Center is that after leaving a conference, students are better prepared to evaluate and revise their written work. A writing conference may focus on interpreting the task of an assignment, refining a thesis statement, making clear and connected arguments, developing a voice or style that is appropriate for the assignment, or improving its grammatical structure.
In addition to working with students, the Writing Center works cooperatively with faculty to develop writing curriculum and methods for evaluating writing.
The Writing Center is located in Block 8, room 207.
