About Us

The Writing Center in Juniper Hall 216 (campus map) offers NVC students an inclusive, welcoming, non-judgmental environment to receive writing support. 

Our friendly, knowledgeable writing coaches/tutors provide one-on-one consultations to help students plan, draft, revise, and edit their writing assignments and tasks. Our collaborative process is designed to help students build writing skills for academic, personal, and career success.

Our Goals

  • To provide students with an opportunity to further develop their study skills and understanding of course content.
  • To provide students with an opportunity to develop positive attitudes towards themselves, their studies, and their writing and cognition skills.
  • To empower students to become confident, effective, and independent learners and writers.
  • To work in partnership with faculty and staff to identify and assist students with academic needs.
