Mission

The USC Writing Center is committed to helping writers take advantage of all the opportunities for learning that exist within the writing process. The Center’s Mission is to help writers in all academic disciplines develop their writing abilities, to promote research in collaborative methods of teaching writing, to train graduate students in writing center teaching and administration, and to provide writing resources to the larger academic community.

To fulfill this mission, the Writing Center staff performs the following tasks:

  • In one-on-one sessions, we work with University students at every stage of the writing process.
  • Through partnership with the Student Success Center, we support the Peer Writing Program, which provides peer tutoring at satellite centers to offer undergraduate students more convenient accessibility to our services and expand USC’s writing community.
  • Through seminars, workshops, and consultations, we help university educators incorporate writing into their classes.
  • We provide resources about writing and writing centers to students, faculty, staff, and the public through our website.
