The Writing Resource Center provides writer-centered, collaborative, non-evaluative writing assistance to freshmen, at-risk students, the general student population, and the entire Xavier community. The WRC is under the auspices of the Student Academic Success Office.
The WRC is a comfortable, open, light-filled space in which students may work alone, with peer tutors, with the staff instructor, or with their classmates on their writing assignments and other student-authored texts during various stages of the writing process.
The WRC also works closely with the English Department to provide extra assistance to students in English composition courses.
The WRC aims to help students build fundamental writing skills, which should help them to maintain their high GPAs—both of which are essential to student success at Xavier University.
The WRC also offers resource materials and bimonthly workshops that provide students with information that may help them to improve their writing. The tutoring, workshops, and resource materials that the WRC provides help students to become independent, confident, strong writers and critical thinkers who enjoy writing.
