Our Mission and Vision

The Writing Center is dedicated to helping those who are part of the Mount Saint Mary College community. In doing so, we have articulated the reason for our presence on campus.

Our Mission

The Writing Center offers supplemental writing instruction to the Mount Saint Mary College community.

Our Vision

The Writing Center is the home for writing at Mount Saint Mary College. Through peer-facilitated writing consultations, co-curricular events, the celebration of writing, as well as collaboration with and support of all members of the Mount community, the Writing Center engenders a culture of writing on campus.


Learning Outcomes for Writers

Through participating in one-on-one, peer-facilitated writing consultations, writers at Mount Saint Mary College will be able to:

 

  • Describe a component of the writing process, rhetorical concept, or grammatical convention.
  • Implement a newly learned component of the writing process, rhetorical concept, or grammatical convention into their own writing.
  • Identify a clear plan for revision or next steps for continued work and improvement on their own writing.
  • Increase self-awareness, self-confidence, and self-efficacy as writers.
