Writing Center Mission

The Writing Center is a place where the dynamic nature of the writing process can be explored, and where effective writing habits can be modeled and developed in a flexible, comfortable environment. Accordingly, Writing Consultants act as an authentic audience and collaborate with writers at any stage of the writing process. Our skilled consultants help writers interpret assignments and readings, organize and effectively support ideas, plan revisions, and refine language, grammar, and style.

Celebration of Student Writing

Every year, Spalding University hosts the Celebration of Student writing. This is an event where we highlight the talent of our students from various disciplines. Students are selected to read their writing for their peers and faculty/staff.
