About the University Writing Center

Our Mission Statement

The University Writing Center is a community of writers supporting writers. Our mission is to make spaces for practicing and learning about writing. Our work is conducted through peer-to-peer mentoring by undergraduate and graduate writing consultants. The work of consulting requires respecting and valuing the unique cultural and personal histories, knowledge, and language practices each writer brings into their writing. We see ourselves as advocates of writers and writing. We strive to be a welcoming, inclusive space for all IUPUI community members to share their writing in an interactive and collaborative learning environment. We are committed to:
• Listening to and respecting writers
• Mentoring and empowering writers
• Valuing multiple literacies and language diversity
• Encouraging self-reflection and critical thinking
• Promoting a broad understanding of writing, language, and literacy
• Conducting and disseminating research related to writing centers, writing pedagogies, and rhetoric and writing that strengthens our programming and commitment to writers
