Lab Introduction

Writing Center

The Writing Center is located in the Sally Monserud Hall (SMH), room 115 (view Campus Map).

The facility has Windows workstations with high-speed Internet access for email, University website access, and Internet access for research, news and general use. The facility contains common software applications used for word processing, spreadsheets, publishing, and presentations. The lab is open to current University of Alaska Anchorage students, faculty, and staff.

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.

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.

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.
