The mission of the Aims Writing Center in the Learning Commons is threefold. First, we offer writing assistance for all Aims students across the curriculum in hopes of fostering confidence and self-sufficiency in all stages and aspects of the writing process. As such, Aims Writing Center tutors are not editors and, therefore, do not proofread, since doing so detracts from the goal of encouraging independent writers, able to self-edit.
Tutors will help students with organization, phrasing, and revising their work. Finally, tutors will work with all types of writing and with student writers of all levels of ability. We work with students who drop in and do not have to make an appointment. The Writing Center also assists students enrolled in reading classes.
