The Writing Center Mission
Whom we serve:
The Oklahoma State University Writing Center is here to serve the OSU community. We aim to develop effective communicators regardless of skill level or background.
What we do:
We help you understand and practice many strategies effective writers use—from brainstorming to drafting to editing techniques.
What we believe:
Our beliefs are rooted in the mission of a land grant institution. We empower you by facilitating the writing process through practical curriculum and open participation. We acknowledge and celebrate diversity and growth by providing an environment in which differences are respected and students are encouraged to explore diverse voices.
Write Here! Write Now! Write On!
In addition to one-on-one consultations with our trained writing consultants, the Writing Center also provides the following services free of charge to all members of the OSU community:
- English as a Second Language conversation groups to help ESL clients improve their English-speaking skills;
- In-class presentations and workshops on a variety of writing-related topics;
- Reference materials and laptop checkout for instructors.
The Writing Center satellite locations will be closed for the summer. Beginning June 9th, the Main Center in SU 440 will be open Monday and Tuesday from 9:30-5:30 and Wednesday and Thursday from 9:30-4:30.
