Mission Statement

In accordance with the University’s mission, the Writing Studio seeks to empower students as life-long critical thinkers and clear communicators by supporting their development as writers.

We believe that writers across all disciplines, at all skill levels, and at any stage in the writing process, benefit from genuine dialogue about their writing. Through one-on-one conferencing and group workshops we act as listeners and guides, respecting and supporting a diverse range of writers as they ask questions, solve problems, and discover new ideas in order to communicate effectively.

During this process, we seek to equip students with strategies for future writing tasks so that they may develop into confident, independent thinkers and writers.


We’re here for you. Writing Consultants can help you:

  • Brainstorm ideas for your paper
  • Organize and focus ideas
  • Improve revision, editing, and proofreading skills
  • Learn to consider audience and tone
  • Check format and documentation for research papers

All the best,
Kristen Schmidt, Director
