“We all know that writing is important, but learning to write is hard. The goal of the Writing Center is to support our students as they grow as writers. It is a safe space where students can get support on their writing from peers who have been trained in how to give effective feedback. I’m grateful for the MVLA Foundation Innovative Learning Grant that made this resource possible."
