Our Mission Statement

The JI Writing Center aims at offering students a safe environment to explore their ideas with trained, engaged readers.

The center consists of a team of undergraduate consultants who provide support for students regarding academic writing, professional writing, technical writing, and oral presentations.

In addition, faculty consultants work with students on specific writing projects, especially personal statements and statements of purpose for graduate school.

The writing center’s goal is to create a process-oriented, writer-oriented, collaborative, non-evaluative and non-directive environment to enhance students’ critical thinking and communication skills.
Writing consultants devote themselves to inspiring and motivating students as well as responding supportively and professionally to their written work or oral presentation. The students’ agency and ideas are fully respected in Writing Center.

Students of all writing levels at all stages of the writing process are welcome to make one-on-one or group appointments.
