Offering face-to-face tutoring, the Center also has links to various writing support websites to help students improve their writing skills. The staff at the Center may hold workshops and presentations for students and classes on a wide range of topics that address writing.

The Learning Center is committed to empowering students across all disciplines to write essays and research papers whose form, grammar, and expression reflect the accepted standards of American English while valuing the unique and individual voices and perspective of the diverse cultures and ideologies of its student body.  Students can also use the Learning Center computers to work on papers during open hours when available.
