About the Writing Center

KU Writing Center at Anschutz Library


As part of the Wingspan: Center for Learning and Writing Support, the KU Writing Center's purpose is to help students gain confidence, improve as writers, and achieve their academic goals by providing high-quality services in a supportive, inclusive environment.

Core Values

The KU Writing Center's staff share a commitment to:

  • helping students improve as writers and to promoting a culture of writing on campus.
  • continually innovating our programs and services in a data-informed manner in order to meet the diverse needs of all KU writers.
  • providing high-quality training and mentoring in order to foster the student staff's personal, professional, and intellectual development.
  • staying connected to the greater writing center community in order to stay current on research, trends, and innovations in the field.

Values Statement

As a part of the global community, the KU Writing Center supports writers in reaching their personal and professional goals. All writers, with their unique life experiences, worldviews, languages and voices, are respected and welcomed. We provide an environment that is conducive to different learning styles and forms of expression, and we respect writers' use of their home languages and world Englishes. We also work with others to pursue justice and remedy current and historical injustices in higher education. Our Center embraces the humanity of all people, celebrating the contributions each individual makes to the Center for Learning and Writing Support, KU, and the wider community.
