Our Mission Statement

The Writing Center maintains a strong commitment to the excellence of all UGA students. We understand that writing is critical to excellence both in the classroom and in the professional future of each student we encounter, regardless of academic interests. We seek to assist students in understanding the writing process, elaborating on their ideas and theories, and evaluating and editing their own work.

   

Our Services

The Writing Center offers a variety of services to meet the needs of both undergraduate and graduate students, but please note we do not provide proofreading/editing services. For help related to editing and grammar, please consult the writing services provided by the Division of Academic Enhancement at http://tutor.uga.edu/arc/tutoring/. We also can provide a list of editors for hire.

Some of our services include:

  • We help you learn to evaluate the concepts of your writing, including thesis development and organization of the essay's content.

  • We teach you how to self-evaluate and proofread your work in every academic subject.

  • We offer tutoring and workshops on various aspects of the writing process.

  • We help both undergraduate and graduate students on any type of writing, from an English 1101 essay to a statement of purpose for medical school to a dissertation draft.

  • Students can bring in their work at any point in the writing process (from brainstorming stages to the complete draft) and meet with an experienced consultant to discuss their work. 

  • Class visits familiarizing your students with Writing Center services are available to instructors and professors throughout UGA. The Writing Center staff will help you design a workshop for your students and present the workshop to your class. E-mail the writing center at writingcenter@uga.edu if you’re interested.
