University Writing Center

Writing is the cornerstone of an educated citizenry. In an increasingly connected and global world, the ability to communicate is paramount. In such a world, there is a need for students to become flexible writers/communicators with the ability to move between the many environments and situations in which they will need to communicate. Our aim is to improve students' writing and thinking, as well as to improve the teaching of those things, both through the one-on-one work we do with students as well as through the work we do with instructors, in addition to working with parents on ways to support writing.

The University Writing Center (UWC) provides writing support through multiple means to all members of the EMU community—undergraduate and graduate students, international students, post-baccalaureate students, and faculty.
