About Us

Our Mission

The NPUST Writing Center helps faculty, undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines become more effective, more confident, and productive writers. We believe that writing is a powerful tool not only for communicating existing ideas but also for discovering new ones; that learning to write is a life-long process; and that all writers benefit from sharing work in progress with knowledgeable, attentive readers.

Our Methods

Multi-faceted, flexible, and above all, collaborative, reflect our respect for the individual writer, whose talents, voice and goals are central to all our endeavors. We offer workshops, instructional materials, and curricular-based writing tutors. Tutors talk with students on a one-to-one basis and offer constructive feedback intended to help students become comfortable with writing and improve their writing practices. We work with writers on a walk-in, first-come, first-served basis, as well as by appointment during our regular office hours.

Instruction can include (but is not limited to) the following: topic development, drafting, grammar, punctuation, scientific writing, and documenting sources.

NPUST Writing Center sessions focus on revision and learning rather than on editing or proofreading, but our staff is always delighted to show you how you can better apply these skills to your own work. In fact, one of the defining principles of our Writing Center is that we tailor our instruction to each client’s needs.
