CHBS Writing Center Mission

The Writing Center supports Radford's student-writers and faculty engaging in writing instruction. We uphold Radford’s commitment to transformative educational experiences by providing one-to-one tutoring, facilitating writing workshops, and developing innovative programs that address the needs of our unique community of writers. Our tutors are highly trained writing specialists who build collaborative relationships with students to help them gain confidence and hone their writing skills. We believe that learning to write is a life-long process, and we welcome writers at any skill level and at any stage in the writing process, from brainstorming to revision.

In service of these ideals we offer the Radford community the following:

  • Supportive and well-trained tutors who are invested in the writing process, as they are experienced writers themselves
  • Writing workshops designed to address the needs of student writers
  • A quiet space to write, read, study, and think

We believe that all writers, students and professionals alike, should have access to this support. As such:

  • We work with students from all disciplines and departments
  • We work with all students—undergraduates, graduates, native English speakers, multi-lingual writers, international students, experienced and beginning writers—on any writing task including personal, creative, and academic work
  • We work with faculty by helping their students meet university-wide expectations and those expectations outlined in individual courses
