Our mission statement

The Writing Center serves Whatcom students who are writing for classes as well as for job and college applications. In the center, readers and writers talk—about an assignment, possible topics, the writer’s views and experiences, writing for college, how to cite sources, any subject related to writing. The writer’s goals and interests determine the direction any session will take, and his or her knowledge will be its foundation; the reader’s role is to assist as the writer explores his or her ideas and options. The readers on staff are curious, active, friendly WCC students who enjoy working and talking with others. We participate in ongoing staff education, are Writing Center users ourselves, regularly update our knowledge of WCC and online resources, and continually reflect on our interactions with writers. In the Writing Center, we work to create a collaborative, safe, intellectually-stimulating environment that welcomes diverse views and voices and supports energetic, genuine student scholarship.

We are affiliated with the Pacific Northwest Writing Centers Association (PNWCA) and the International Writing Centers Association (IWCA).
