The Writing Center is a peer-based learning support service for currently enrolled VCU students. Our primary focus is to respectfully and holistically guide students on their journeys to becoming the strongest writers possible. In doing so, we serve as a space where students can explore and validate their experiences through writing, helping them achieve agency through recognizing and developing their voices and writing processes. We facilitate educational equity for students of all disciplines, skill levels, backgrounds, and identities, collaborating with them to elevate, not evaluate, their written work.
