The Center for Writing at South Carolina State University.
Greene, Ghussan R.
The location of a university writing center is not as important as whether the faculty responsible for the center have a clear picture of how they would like the center to be viewed by the students. A campus writing center should be the hub of all academic writing across the campus. For one instructor, the first lab he developed at a small college was like another English class for the students. Later, as a faculty supervisor of the writing center at a large community college in Florida, he felt that the biggest boon to making the writing at least as important as the remediation was the use of computers. At the present time, there is a need for the writing center at South Carolina State to serve the whole university community, so that students and faculty can come to talk about their writing at any stage of the writing process, not just to type a paper. In addition to computer literacy and writing workshops, the center offers mini workshops throughout the year. In the future, satellite writing centers across the campus will not focus on computer skills but will focus on conferencing about writing. (CR)
