Writing Center


Our Philosophy

The Augusta University Writing Center supports student writers by providing them with one-on-one writing consultations. Our practice is governed by the following assumptions:

  • Every student has a unique learning style and benefits from individualized writing instruction.
  • Every student can sharpen his or her writing skills with hard work and practice.
  • Good writing and communication skills are necessary for academic success, regardless of discipline.

The Writing Center staff will...

  • Assist all students with their writing, regardless of their discipline.
  • Promote the Center across campus to make students and faculty alike aware of our services.
