Our Mission

The Carroll College Writing Center provides a place outside the classroom where the student and writing consultant can work together with the common goal of helping the student become a more skillful and independent writer. A consultant will thus help you develop the skills of thinking critically, exploring ideas, composing, revising, and editing. The Writing Center provides informed and effective help for students of diverse cultures, throughout the academic disciplines, and through all levels of writing experience.

Because we serve the broader academic community in educating the whole person, we do not simply fix writing for students. The writing does get better, but that is because we help students achieve the skills that allow them to improve writing for themselves.
