Writing CenterOverview

Writing Center Guide

The Writing Center exists as a teaching and learning space for UAA students. The center promotes the use of academic writing in all disciplines as a tool for learning, communicating, self-expression and critical thinking. Students are the primary focus of our work, both the students who deliver the consultations and those who receive it.

The Writing Center consultations complement course-based learning and help contribute to student success. We strive to work closely with students, faculty and administrators to help students become capable, successful writers.

Writing Center Email Consultations and Live Appointments

Writing Center consultants work with students at all levels to help improve and integrate their reading and writing skills into regular study habits through one-on-one discussions of their work. The goal is students’ long-term improvement in their work.

Additionally, the Writing Center serves students for whom English is a second, or even third or fourth, language. Such students come from many departments at UAA and all are welcome to use our services. Because English is structurally different than many of the languages of the world, we understand the challenges that students face when writing academically.

Writing consultations can be a useful resource at any point in the writing process from brainstorming ideas before a paper is written, to looking over a written document. The Writing Center consultants also offer assistance in understanding and using APA, MLA, and Chicago Style formats.
