What don’t the Writing Center consultants do?

Because our mission is to support students as they become better writers, our consultants do not proofread and correct student papers but, rather, help your students learn strategies to better proofread their own papers. Our consultants do not take over authorship of the students’ work; instead, they hold conversations with students about the written work and offer suggestions, while leaving authorship in the students’ hands. Further, our consultants do not discuss with students any personal comments about the writing assignments or grading of student work; that is strictly between instructor and student.
