Mission Statement

The Writing Center works to promote clear, effective written communication. Our highly trained peer tutors help members of the NMU community improve their writing skills through free, one-on-one consultations and online tutorials. We use recognized best practices in writing education to foster good writing habits; our goal is always to help and empower students, not just “fix” a paper.


The Writing Center is proud to be sponsored by the NMU English Department, which offers an array of undergraduate, graduate, and certification programs in English, writing, journalism, TESOL, and more.
