Our Philosophy

The University Writing Center believes that the best way to improve writing is to help the writer improve his or her own skills.  We strive to help the writer become a better writer, not simply to help the paper become a better paper.  We believe in the ability of every person to grow and improve, and we especially believe in the responsibility of every person to take charge of his or her own growth.  We believe that a writer must have respect for the audience, respect for the language, and respect for the truth.
