Writing Resource Center

The Writing Resource Center (WRC) provides student-centered, collaborative, non-evaluative writing assistance to the Xavier community in a comfortable setting. Students are able to work alone, with tutors, a staff instructor, or their peers on writing assignments 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 helps students build fundamental writing skills by offering tutoring, resource materials, and regular workshops. The mission of the WRC is to help students to become independent, confident, and critical thinkers who enjoy writing. We maintain a regularly-updated Brightspace page with information about upcoming workshops, recordings of past workshops, and other resources—all students in the College of Arts and Sciences are automatically enrolled in this Brightspace page.

Additionally, the WRC offers thirty-minute one-on-one tutoring sessions. These are offered both in-person (when public health conditions permit) and online through Zoom, and are open to all Xavierites needing help with any aspect of writing.
