WRITING CENTER
MISSION STATEMENT

The Writing Center at NWACC is an integral part of the composition program. Writing Center faculty offer their expertise to respond to writers individually during the writing process. We strive to develop in the writer the ability to recognize good writing, utilize research techniques, and avoid plagiarism in his/her writing.

Our instructors will read and respond to writing, offer suggestions for improving one's draft, and encourage all to become better writers.

Our instructors will not proofread or "fix" writing, write papers for students, or tell a student what grade a paper should receive.
