Writing Center

Mission

The Writing Center at Rocky Mountain College, located in Tyler Hall 207, provides one-on-one consulting for student writers across disciplines, assisting them at any stage in the writing process to improve their writing and learning. Students can visit the Writing Center to brainstorm ways of approaching an assignment, read over a rough draft, proofread a draft, ask questions about correct citation methods, create an outline, and address any other concerns. Writing Consultants are prepared to help students from all academic disciplines with sensitivity to the values in those specific disciplines. Our goal – whatever the step in the writing process and whatever the class – is to instill confidence in students as writers so that they develop a strong sense of responsibility and dedication to their education.

Description of Consulting Sessions

Students are the primary agents in writing center sessions. At no point do our consultants write for students. The students, not the consultants, must own their papers and take full responsibility for them. Consultants and students read assignments aloud, develop conversations about these assignments, read drafts aloud, identify strengths in the writing, and collaboratively arrive at writing decisions that are sensitive to professors’ goals. Students who come to the Writing Center and expect to passively receive knowledge will not become any closer to their writing and will not improve as writers. We require students’ investment, and we’re prepared to foster writing improvement.

Meet the Writing Center Consultants, and read student feedback on Writing Center visits.
