Our Mission

The Writing Center is a free academic support service for all members of the Augsburg community. Our purpose in the Writing Center is to collaborate with students in order to facilitate their engagement with the writing process – from brainstorming ideas and thesis formation to providing revision strategies.

The Writing Center can help writers deal with writer’s block, audience awareness, argumentation, organization, grammar, research skills, the conventions of academic writing, English as a Foreign Language, and issues of clarity and style. By enlisting the students’ active involvement in this process through individual tutoring and interactive dialogue, we encourage them to understand their writing strengths and weaknesses.

The Writing Center’s goal is to produce better writers who will compose well-developed, well-structured, and coherent papers. By these means, we build positive tutor-writer relationships. We look forward to seeing you!

Remember the text we work on is your paper, and you set the agenda for each session. Please remember to bring the assignment if possible and a copy of your work in progress.
