The goal of the writing centre program is to offer individual and in-class writing support for all students and faculty at Laurier. We work with all students, undergraduate and graduate, to help them enhance their academic writing. The key principle of the program is to support the writing that goes on in the classroom in a way that helps students and faculty achieve their academic goals.
The Writing Centre has two full-time staff and 20 paid student tutors. In addition to providing support and instruction to students and faculty at Laurier, we also conduct research on academic writing, and this research informs our programming and services.
The Writing Centre is grateful for the support of the Student Life Levy and the Beckman Writing Centre Endowment. The Writing Centre has successfully received grants for research from the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
