Writing Center

We have Turnitin Software

The TRiO Writing Center is open to all TRiO eligible students and is intended to be a tool to teach students as they are guided through the process of editing, citing and revision. The student and a Writing Center Assistant will work together to make further grammar and citing corrections/suggestions once the student has already proofread his/her paper. This tutorial process will help the students become more familiar with common writing errors and help them recognize and correct such errors on their own.

The Writing Center staff provides the following

  • Writing Workshops: (mini lessons on specific problems)
  • Writing Tutorials: one-on-one sessions over specific assignments
  • Research and documentation assistance in various styles
    • MLA
    • APA
    • Chicago and/or Turabian
  • Final proofreading after editing

Mission Statement:
The TRiO Writing Center offers CRLA trained tutors who work with student writers to promote good writing.

We discuss topics, suggest approaches, guide/focus the writing, emphasize research and documentation for various levels of writing, and generally work with students who have ideas but do not always express them clearly.

The TRiO Writing Center helps students learn basic skills to improve their writing style in order to fulfill the requirements of their DWU classes.
