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.
