The Writing Center

The Writing Center has as its mission the honing of students’ composition skills. And is a  handy resource for EAP, undergraduate, and graduate students, it aids at all stages of the writing process, from the construction of an argument to the fine-tuning of its expression. There is no cap on the number of consultation sessions per student. Indeed, students are encouraged to make use of the Center as often as they need assistance.

This might be for a single assignment, or for several over the course of a semester. Similarly, a student might seek consultation for one paper after another that are required by the same instructor, or for papers assigned by separate instructors in the same semester.

Ensures the improvement of students’ writing composition skills in collaboration with Faculty the EAP department and Student Affairs.

The Center is dedicated to all students – undergraduate, graduate and those in the English for Academic Purposes programs or existing students whom would like to do a refresher course.

Provides assistance at all stages of the writing process, from the construction of an argument to the fine-tuning of its expression. However, the Center does not provide editing services. This means that the students are expected to participate in every aspect of the writing process, from thinking critically about a topic to then making informed choices about their composition.

Students are encouraged to make use of the Centre as often as possible since there is no cap on the number of consultation sessions a student may request.

The Writing Center will be at the AUM Library meeting room on Mondays from 12pm to 2pm, Tuesdays from 11am to 1pm and Wednesdays from 12pm to 2pm. Students are welcome to come for one-to-one tutoring during these hours.
