Are Writing Consultants' Goals?
Regardless of the format or length of a consultation, we do not edit or proofread students’ writing for them. Instead, our goal is to provide guidance and encouragement that will allow students to make their own revision decisions and allow students to continually grow and improve as writers.
Writing Center consultants strive to support classroom learning. We will never assume the role of professor and always recommend students follow classroom/syllabi instructions. If the student is unclear or unsure of instructions, we strongly encourage the student to visit with the individual professor during office hours or ask specific questions of the professor before, during, or after class.
We do not discuss instructors or the grading policies of instructors.
We do not evaluate writing, assign grades, or speculate in any way about the grades that students might receive.
