• Students working at the Writing Center

Our mission

The Western Michigan University Writing Center is dedicated to creating and fostering a campus culture that values writing as an essential process by which individuals develop scholarly knowledge, critical thinking ability, communication skills  and practical wisdom. The Writing Center helps writers at all levels and of all abilities determine strategies for effective communication and make academically responsible choices at any stage in the writing process and in any genre. Our hope is to empower each writer with the skills to better understand their own work and to more deeply engage with other writers' works.
