Writing Center

Mission

The North Park University Writing Center provides free assistance to the university community through our drop-in center, one-on-one conferencing, and specialized workshops for all students enrolled in first-year Core Curriculum courses. Our undergraduate Writing Advisors (WA’s) are trained to respect the intellectual work and linguistic roots of all students. We aim to cultivate writing as a process and promote healthy, coordinated habits for writing and learning while providing a brave space where passion for language can be celebrated.
