The Writing Center at ACMU

The Marian University's Ancilla College Writing Center is not so much a place as it is an entity. Housed under the umbrella of The Learning Commons, The Writing Center is comprised of several elements, all professionally staffed, free for sutdent use, and designed to help you become a more effective writer both inside and outside the classroom.

Here is a brief description of the different ways the Writing Center can help you as well as the links to directly make contact with those areas:

Peer Tutoring

The peer tutors at the Writing Center are carefully selected and fully trained students that are committed to helping you pave a clear path to more effective writing. Their job is not to “proofread” papers, but rather eliminate obstacles that get in the way of clear writing. By working together, we can make sure that you are able to better formulate communication that best suits your needs.

Lab Instructors

The Lab Instructors at Marian University's Ancilla College are Master's Level professionals with experience in the technical elements of academic writing. Most students are required or choose to take a 1 credit hour writing lab along with their writing course. For this, the student will meet with a Lab Instructor once a week for the duration of the semester. The Lab Instructor’s goal is to help guide you past personal hurdles in writing in order to ensure a more comprehensive instruction. 

Writing Resources

Sometimes you just need a quick answer. The Learning Commons has a variety of writing resources at your fingertips.  There are paper resources and codes posted to link you to whatever help you may need to help you with your writing. All of the staff within the Learning Commons Walls are also trained to help point you in the right direction of any assistance you may need. 

Research Assistance

One of the major components of academic writing is research. The Learning Commons at MUAC has a team dedicated to helping you with that. The Research Center in the Learning Commons is staffed with Master's Level trained people who are experienced in digging through the vast array of materials out there that will help you support your writing in the best way possible.
